英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Sixteen children with myelodysplastic syndrome as defined by the French-American-British co-operative group are presented. The mean age was 10.5 (2.5 to 16) years, with a male predominence. All patients belonged to the more aggressive subtypes of myelodysplastic syndromes. Seven patients presented with refractory anaemia with excess blasts, six had refractory anemia with excess blasts in transformation, and three had chronic myelomonocytic leukemia. Cytogenetic analysis done in 7 of the 16 patients, revealed karyotype abnormalities involving chromosomes 7, 8 and 17. One patient with Down's syndrome had karyotype of 47, XY, +21 (major clone) and 46, XY (minor clone). Five of these patients evolved to acute leukemia. The mean duration of survival was 5.5 months. Aggressive...
