Ectopic erythropoietin production

From WikiLectures

Erythropoietin is physiologically produced in special cells of the kidney and, to a lesser extent, in the liver. Ectopically, it can be formed in tumour cells of the kidney, liver, cerebellum and uterus. Diagnostically, isolated elevated CBC values, elevated erythropoietin levels, and adequate blood saturation may alert us to it.
