This diagnosis is a part of ICD10 collection.
Polycythaemia (Rubra) Vera, also known as primary polycythaemia vera, is a disorder where too many red cells are produced in the bone marrow, without any identifiable cause. These cells accumulate in the bone marrow and in the blood stream where they increase the blood volume and cause the blood to become thicker, or more 'viscous' than normal. In many people with polycythaemia vera, too many platelets and white cells are also produced.
