    They reported that the most likely cause was increased exposure to leukemogenic agents in the workplace or during medical treatment. Atomic bombs, nuclear power station accidents, automobile exhausts, and pesticides were likely culprits. From the LRF study (9), there is clear evidence of an increasing incidence in MDS. In 1984, the standardized incidence rate was 75% of the mean, and in 1988 it was 125%. This trend was confirmed by the subsequent publication from the same group covering the next 5 years (10).

    Sometimes the same constitutional abnormalities on chromosomes 5 and 7 are implicated (37–39), but often no linkage is found (40–42). Occasionally, MDS may supervene in familial Pelger-Hu¨et anomaly (43). An underlying genetic disorder is also suggested for those cases that seem to have been caused by environmental toxins. One example is the enzyme glutathione S-transferase, which is involved in the detoxification of carcinogens. It has been postulated that deficiency of this enzyme might be associated with a greater risk of MDS.
