Bone marrow examination is required for diagnosis of various haematological disorders. It includes both neoplastic and nonneoplastic disorders. Usually, bone marrow examination includes Bone Marrow Aspiration (BMA), bone marrow biopsy and bone marrow imprints. Bone marrow clot sections can also be an adjuvant of bone marrow examination. The bone marrow clot sections are prepared from the left-over blood after aspirate smears have been prepared. An adequate bone marrow clot section can be valuable for diagnosis of various diseases, especially in cases in which the aspirate and core biopsy material are inadequate or non contributory or it can be an adjuvant procedure. Little has been published about usefulness of bone marrow clot section. Studies are going on to evaluate the role of bone marrow clot section as an adjuvant or a diagnostic tool. This study includes a series of three cases in which bone marrow clot section was diagnostic.
