Is fever a symptom of myleodysplasia refractory cytopenia multilineage dysplasia?
i have been getting low grade fevers since i have been diagnosed is fever a symptomof this disease
hello and thank you for sending the question.
Fever might not necessarily be a direct symptom of the disease. However, this particular disease can cause your immune system to be depressed. This could lead you to be more susceptible to viral and bacterial infections.
I am sure your hematologist is following your blood counts closely.sometimes if the white blood cell count is chronically low your doctor might consider placing you on prophylactic antibiotics to help protect your immune system.
If you continue to have persistent fevers I would recommend that you discuss this with your doctors.you may need a follow-up examination, possibly x-rays and bloodwork.
Again your doctor might consider prophylactic antibiotics in this type of setting. please contact your doctor at your earliest convenience.
i have looked up on internet clevland clinic and wickopedia have

thanks for the additional information.
While it may be possible that the fever is related to your myelo dysplastic syndrome it is still necessary to rule out possible infectious causes including viruses. Your doctor might consider checking some blood test for these types of things.
The severity of your fever is also something we would consider. If the fever is very low-grade then we might be able to conclude it's relation to your blood disorder.
it sounds like you have had a fairly comprehensive evaluation so far. The other consideration at this point would be to look for possible underlying viral infections which could be contributing to this.
I would suggest you discuss these considerations with your primary hematologist.
