Abstract

Up to 10% of patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) may have arthralgias as a feature of their disease. All patients with MDS have the potential to progress into acute leukemia. We describe the case of a 59-year-old male with MDS who presented with synovitis due to leukemic infiltration of the synovium as the first symptom heralding the conversion of MDS into acute leukemia.
