Non-Hypersplenism Causes of Peripheral Cytopenias in Patients with Cirrhotic Portal Hypertension: A Review


Yunfu Lv, Wan Yee Lau, Jie Deng, YeJuan Li and Yonghong Dong

Hypersplenism and non-hypersplenism factors, either alone or in combination, can cause peripheral cytopenias in patients with cirrhotic portal hypertension. Although non-hypersplenism factors account for only a small proportion of patients, they do exist. When peripheral cytopenias do not improve, or fail to improve adquately, or even become worse after splenectomy in these patients, non-hypersplenism factors should be considered. This review aims to provide an overview of non-hypersplenism factors.
