Abstract

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of diseases characterized by ineffective haematopoiesis and cytopenias in peripheral blood. Transformation into acute myeloid leukaemia is a common complication of MDS. Life expectancy varies between nearly normal and early death.

In addition to that, several interesting clinical studies regarding diagnosis and treatment were presented.
