Abstract

Approximately 50% of patients with polycythemia vera (PV) have PV-related symptoms at diagnosis; these symptoms might develop or worsen with time. Symptoms have been shown to negatively affect quality of life and interfere with daily activities. To our knowledge, an analysis to evaluate the relationship between blood count control and symptoms has not been published.
