Answer

Erythroleukemia is a neoplastic proliferation of erythroid and myeloid precursors of bone marrow hematopoietic stem cells. [4] On rare occasions, however, a pure erythroid proliferation may occur. Erythroleukemia shares clinical and pathologic features with myelodysplastic syndromes, especially with erythroid-predominant myelodysplastic syndromes. [5]
