Polycythemia vera (PV) is a stem cell disorder characterized as a hyperplastic, malignant, and neoplastic marrow disorder. Its most prominent feature is an elevated absolute red blood cell mass because of uncontrolled red blood cell production. This is a rare disorder that occurs more often in men than in women. It is not often seen in people under age 40. The problem is often linked to a gene defect called JAK2V617F. The cause of this gene defect is unknown.
