Abstract

Simultaneous presentation of dual lineage hematological malignancy is an uncommon entity. Particularly de-novo Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS) and Multiple Myeloma (MM) is very rare co-occurrence. Co-existent presentation of de novo MM and MDS in young patient has not been reported in English literature. Here we present a unique case of 30 year old patient with dual diagnosis of primary MDS and MM. Both of these hematological malignancies affect mainly elderly patients with and both of these conditions are currently incurable. The prognosis of such patients remains usually poor. No curative treatment is currently available for MDS and MM; Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (Allo-HSCT) is the only potential curative option.
