Abstract

Objective: Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is recognized as a preleukemic disorder with a variable risk of transformation to acute myeloid leukemia. Usually the blast cells in leukemia are transformed after MDS displays a myeloid phenotype. Lymphoid progression had been reported as myeloid-lymphoid hybrid or early B phenotype, but our patient transformed acute T-lymphoblastic leukemia, which is a rare lymphoid transformation.
