  1. Epidemiologic perspectives on myelodysplastic syndromes and leukemia.

    Article - En anglais

    The ICD classification of the myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), and the four main features of the descriptive epidemiology of the condition are discussed.

    MDS is :

    • (1) a rare disease ;

    • which may be, (2) on the increase ;

    • (3) which primarily affects the elderly ;

    • and (4) which predominantly affects men.

    We reviewed four causal models pertaining to the relationship between MDS and leukemia.

    These models may be described as :

    • (1) non-biological correlates ;

    • (2) biological correlates ;

    • (3) early phase ;

    • and (4) interactive cause.

    Each model is described and the evidence in support of or against each is presented.
