26 October 2017 (Thursday) - MDS

Here’s an interesting case study on the Facebook Haematology Interest Group page.

57 Year old Female Patient with MDS, WBC count is approximately 20,000 and Platelets were elevated. The patient was not anemic. We see many large platelets and also dysplastic megakaryocytes with budding. This was a very complex patient. I have no further information so that is why I am posting this in total. The patient has since expired

If you’ve not got a Facebook account it is worth getting one, if only to see the images in this case. This is the sort of thing we see oh-so-rarely. The Facebook Haematology Interest Group page is an ideal place to see these obscure cases.
