The cause of PV remains uncertain. In general, the increased mass of red blood cells in the patient’s blood causes both hemorrhage and abnormal formation of blood clots in the circulatory system (thrombosis). The reasons for these changes in clotting patterns are not yet fully understood. Source: The Gale Group. Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine, 3rd ed.
