Polycythemia vera masked due to severe iron deficiency anemia.

Polycythemia vera is one of the chronic myeloproliferative diseases and very few patients present with its actual clinical manifestations. The most common findings are increased red cell mass and an increased leukocyte count with decreased erythropoietin. We present a case where there was a delay in the diagnosis of polycythemia because of menorrhagia in the past. On admission, the patient presented with elevated red and white blood cell counts, erythropoietin was low, and polycythemia was then suspected. A bcr-abl test was performed to rule out chronic myelogenous leukemia. JAK2 mutation was positive, and the patient was diagnosed with polycythemia vera.
