Abstract The median age of occurrence of primary acquired sideroblastic anemia is 74.4 years, with a range of 12 to 96 years (calculated from 452 cases). Of 445 cases, 60.4\% were male, and 39.6\% female. Not only primary acquired sideroblastic anemia, but the entire myelodysplastic syndrome must be considered as a disease of old age.
