Abstract

We experienced a case of gelatinous transformation of bone marrow in a patient with congestive heart failure in malnutrition. The biopsy findings of bone marrow were gelatinous transformation, a condition characterized by disruption of marrow architecture, fat atrophy, and deposition of hyaluronic acid. Gelatinous transformation is often mistaken as representing edema, necrosis, or amyloidosis.
