Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) belong to acquired clonal haematologic disorders associated with defective maturation in erythroid, myeloid and megakaryocytic lineages. It rarely affects children and young adults. The common cytogenetic abnormalities in children are monosomy 7, trisomies 8 and 21. Here, authors report a case of MDS in a 15-year-old patient with a rare finding of chromosomal translocation t (6;9) (p23;q34).
