Objectives: The aim of this study was to assess bone marrow (BM) fibrosis and dysplasia in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients receiving the first-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), imatinib, or secondgeneration TKIs, dasatinib, and nilotinib. We further investigated whether CML under TKI is associated with dysplastic BM changes during the clinicopathological course of the disease.
