Myelodysplastic syndromes: clinical practice guidelines in oncology.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) represent a heterogeneous group of clonal hematopoietic disorders characterized by cytopenias, dysplasia in one or more myeloid lineages, and the potential for development of acute myeloid leukemia.
