Depressive symptoms and myeloproliferative neoplasms: Understanding the confounding factor in a complex condition

Additionally, patients who reported worse depressive symptoms also scored significantly higher on the Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Symptom Assessment Form (mean 40.8 vs 24.6; <.001), had higher worst fatigue score (mean 7.8 vs 5.8; <.001), and had worse overall quality of life (mean 5.7 vs 3.1; <.0001).
