Bone marrow necrosis is often associated with thrombocytopenia, anemia, low blood count (pancytopenia), and other complications that should be managed with supportive measures until the underlying disease is effectively treated. Once the necrosis stops, the bone marrow cells are able to grow and thrive again.
