Ionizing radiation Cases of MDS are reported in cohorts of people exposed to radiation, either for treatment of diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis [52] or following exposure to the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki [53]. Mauritzson et al. identified a longer latency period for the development of t-MDS/AML following radiotherapy exposure (median 207 months) compared with alkylating agent chemotherapy plus or minus radiotherapy (median 63 months) [10]. The incidence of t-MDS/AML 19 does not appear to be increased following local radiotherapy for lymphoma, but is probably increased following total body irradiation exposure at autologous stem-cell transplant [54].
