Abstract

The Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) comprises a spectrum of hematopoietic stem cell disorders. Identification of additional parameters that might distinguish different risk groups or entities would be useful. Flow cytometric studies have begun to characterize individual or composite immunophenotypic abnormalities as well as light scatter properties that may be helpful for diagnosis and of prognostic value for the natural course of the disease and for outcome after therapy. Here we review the current state of the art of the use of flow cytometry in patients with MDS.
