    Myelodysplasia syndrome (MDS), is a type of disease that is associated with abnormal cells in the blood and bone marrow. Patients with the disease commonly have immature stem cells which result in unhealthy progenies such as platelets, red and white blood cells.

Early recognition is essential, as APMF can quickly turn fatal, a consequence of the disease’s ubiquitous pathologic features, aggressive clinical course, and poor response to traditional treatments. Pathologically this AML subtype is recognizable for its heavily fibrotic marrow, increased overall cellularity, immaturity of all cell-line lineages, abnormal megakaryocyte
