Question


Histology--Heme & Lymphoid Neoplasms: How should histology be coded for final bone marrow diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome with excess blasts?  See Discussion.
 



Discussion


This terminology is not specifically included in either alternate names list for myelodysplastic syndrome, NOS (9989/3) or refractory anemia with excess blasts (9983/3).

Example: Bone Marrow Biopsy, Final Diagnosis: Consistent with involvement by myelodysplastic syndrome with excess blasts-2 (MDS EB-2).



Answer


Assign code 9983/3 refractory anemia with excess blasts.  Refractory anemia is a type of myelodyplastic syndrome. We will add this to the Heme & Lymphoid database during the next update.
