Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)


Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a group of bone marrow disorders characterized by ineffective production of blood cells. In MDS, the bone marrow fails to produce enough healthy red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. This can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, recurrent infections, and easy bruising or bleeding. MDS can range from mild to severe and may progress to acute leukemia in some cases. Treatment options include supportive care, blood transfusions, medications to stimulate blood cell production, and bone marrow transplantation for eligible patients.
