I've had leukopenia for a year now. Off and on fatigue. No other symptoms. 30yr old female. Could this be MDS? RBC normal. Only thing wrong is WBC.

In brief: Unlikely

Women can have a lower white count compared to men.
However, should have it monitored. Consider further testing to rule out reversible causes. Hope this helps.

In brief: Need Hematology cons

A consult with a hematologist can help sort this out and determine the real diagnosis.
MDS is uncommon in people under 40 years of age; ; it will often have abnormalities in Red cells, white cells and Platelets. If you can share your CBC results including total WBC and differential count, we can help and guide you further. it may simply be isolated Leucopenia which is not that serious as MDS
