Myelodysplastic Syndrome

What is myelodysplastic syndrome?

Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is associated with low blood cell counts and a high risk for progression to cancer. The disease is more common in elderly people and rarely occurs in children.

Symptoms of myelodysplastic syndrome include:

  • Frequent infections
  • Easy bruising
  • Anemia-like fatigue

Myelodysplastic syndrome is usually diagnosed with blood tests, bone marrow samples and molecular tests.
