Refractory anemia with ring sideroblasts
Help me code for diagnosis year :
> or equal to 15% ringed sideroblasts in marrow
< 5% myeloblasts in marrow, not in blood
The principle sites of involvement are the peripheral blood and bone marrow.
For MDS diseases (9980, 9982, 9983, 9985, 9986, 9989, 9991, 9992), abstracting each of the subtypes would result in over-counting of the diseases.
1. Code only the first subtype that is diagnosed.
2. Do not change the histology code or create a new abstract for any subsequent specific MDS subtypes.
