Hyperplastic bone marrow

I have a question about my mother who lives in Europe.

She is 59 years old and has Rheumatoid Arthritis since 1996.
After experiencing weight loss/ sweating for about 6 months, she was checked by hematologists. Biopsy was taken 3 months ago from bone marrow, and the Lab anatomist conclusion was that she has hyperplasic bone marrow. Many other body tests were done however hematologists did not identify of what is exactly her medical problem.
Currently weighs about 60 kg (132 lbs). Height is 167cm (5'6").
