My grandma has myelodysplastic syndrome. How is this related to Leukemia (if it is)? She's tried various


treatments. Had transfusions, which went to every 3 weeks. Now is starting Chemo. She is 72. Any ino would be great!
Thanks.
----------

It is a syndrome where the bone marrow failed to make normal pre-blood cells (hematopoetic cells) resulting in blood cells deficiency (pan-cytopenia)
It does have a relation to leukemia since it can transform to acute myeloid leukemia -> where the damaged bone marrow cells replaced by the leukemia cells
The transfusion is needed because of the blood cells deficiency.  (+ info)

What syndromes or conditions have low birth weight, short stature, small hands and feet?


no retardation, possible late sexual maturity. My sister has functioned normally, has a great job, two children, and is pregnant. She is 29 and had a stroke. Doctor may think it could be a genetic disorder. He asked if we had downs syndrome in our family. She weighed 2 pounds at birth and her hands and feet are small, large eyes and tongue. She has been complaining of headaches and migranes for years.
----------

Prematurity alone will give those symptoms. My son, born 3 months premature, weighed 2 pounds at birth and is 22 now. He is 5'4" tall and weighs 100 pounds. Everything about him is small. he does not have the tongue issue though and is totally normal except for adhd, learning disabilities, motor control issues and aspergers. None of which anyone can see looking at him.

There are many disorders with the broad symptoms you list:
Prader-Willi Syndrome (not all have mental retardation)
Dwarfism
Here is a list of oodles more:

Let it it up to the doctors to diagnose though, no one here can diagnose without being a doctor and actually examining your sister. Leave it to the professionals, they will get to the bottom of it.  (+ info)
