Bone marrow necrosis (BMN) is a rare pathological diagnosis, with an incidence of 0.3% to 2%. It is most often associated with hematological malignancies and less commonly due to solid tumors, infections, medications, sickle cell disease, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or idiopathic causes. We reviewed bone marrow biopsies performed in our institution from 2009 to 2019 and found three cases of BMN. Two cases were secondary to neoplastic causes, while the third one was possibly from alcohol abuse.
