Refractory Anemia
A form of myelodysplasia, which primarily affects red cell production by the bone marrow. In some cases the developing red cells show an internal ring of iron granules. These cells are called sideroblasts. Refractory anemia (RA) and refractory anemia with sideroblasts (RAS) are the most common forms of myelodysplasia.
