Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)

Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS)

MDS is defined as ineffective hematopoiesis characterized by adequate or increased hematologic elements in bone marrow with peripheral cytopenia. Therefore, the presence of cytopenia in one or more hematologic lines is necessary for the diagnosis of MDS. However, numerous reactive conditions other than MDS can cause cytopenia and these conditions must be distinguished from MDS. […]
