Monosomy 7 has been described in myelodysplastic syndromes and acute myeloid or lymphoblastic leukemias, as well as in several benign or malignant solid tumors. It is not usual in adipose tissue tumors.


- myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS or myelodysplasia)

  • Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is a clonal hematopoietic disorder that often results in progression to acute myeloid leukemia (AML), particularly when additional genetic abnormalities are present, such as monosomy 7.
