Brief Summary:

Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) are characterized by quantitative and qualitative bone marrow failure and by a disorder of the medullary production which is a pre-leukemic state which can evolve into acute myeloid leukemia.

The risk of leukemic transformation is estimated by the score IPSS (International Prognostic Score System). We distinguish the MDS of low risk (IPSS<1) and those of high risk of leukemic transformation (IPSS=1,5).

Besides the risk of leukemic transformation, MDS much be complicated of infections which could be life-threatening.

The risk of developing first infection after the diagnosis of MDS of high risk is probably influenced by anamnestic (disease duration, comorbidities), clinical (veinous central catheter, previous hospitalization), biological (neutropenia, lymphopenia, serum ferritin) and therapeutics (demethylating agent, lenalidomide, erythropoietin, G-CSF, transfusions, anti-infectious preventive treatment) factors. Their identification will allow for improved targeting of the population which is is likely to benefit from anti-infective prophylaxis Primary objective is to identify risk factors associated with first acute episode of infection in patients with MDS, by comparing index cases and matched control cases who did not develop infection episode since diagnosis.

Secondary objectives are to explore nature and severity of infectious episodes, number of recurrences during 1 year of follow up and survival at 6 and 12 months

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Case group
Patient developing a first episode of infection since diagnosis of high-risk MDS (index case)
Other: No intervention
Control group

Patient with no infection since diagnosis of MDS

Patient will be paired to index case by:

  • Hospital site
  • Age
  • Sexe Control patient is eligible if he has been seen in consultation within 15days before or after date of first infection of index case If matching fails, control patient can be found in another site and/or within 30days before or after date of first infection of index case
Other: No intervention

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occurrence of infectious episode [ Time Frame: 12 months follow-up ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. severity of infectious episode [ Time Frame: 12 months follow-up ]
  2. Overall Survival (all-cause mortality) [ Time Frame: 12months follow-up ]
