Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is a malignant hematologic disorder that may present with clinical features consistent with the diagnosis of severe aplastic anemia (SAA). Distinguishing the two disorders may depend on the presence of a clonal chromosomal abnormality. In the following, we report a case of MDS associated with what we believe to be a previously unreported clonal abnormality of chromosome 1q, a finding that enabled us to distinguish between MDS and SAA.
