Myelodysplasia: The typical bone marrow features seen in myelodysplastic syndrome can include a hypercellular marrow (the marrow is too full of cells although in some cases the bone marrow can be more empty (hypocellular). There is typically disorder growth of cells so that they do not mature normally (dypsoiesis). Also, many times the chromosomes (cytogenetics) of the bone marrow cells will be abnormal.
