    Got an Urinary Tract Infection. My platelets dropped from 111000 to 91000 in 2 days. Would infection cause this or my MDS I have. I was in a private room due to my low white blood cells. 1.3.

    Hi Mark, Unfortunately, MDS patients with a low white blood cell count are highly susceptible to getting infections. Your low platelet count is a result of your MDS not due to your urinary tract infection.
