Possible Causes for Leptomeningeal Metastasis in USA

  • Acute Monocytic Leukemia
    Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    Acute monocytic leukemia (AMoL, or AML-M5) is considered a type of acute myeloid leukemia. In order to fulfill World Health Organization (WHO) criteria for AML-5, a patient must have greater than 20% blasts in the bone marrow, and of these, greater than 80% must be of the monocytic lineage. A further…[1]

  • Acute Leukemia
    Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    Both acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are an acute form of leukemia characterized by proliferation of early lymphoid/myeloid precursor cells which replace the normal hematopoietic cells of the bone marrow. Patients with ALL and AML may present with symptoms related to either…[2]

  • Leukemia
    Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    Leukemia is cancer of the blood forming tissues that also affects the bone marrow and the lymphatic system. Such a type of cancer causes abnormal development of cells that gradually enter the bloodstream. Symptoms of leukemia vary with the type. The common symptoms of the disease include the following: Undue…[3]

  • Acute Myelocytic Leukemia
    Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    Acute myelocytic leukemia is a myeloproliferative disorder characterized by the accumulation of abnormal myeloid precursors in the bone marrow. The disease may be associated with end organ dysfunction resulting from an infiltration with leukemic cells, but mortality is most commonly due to the consequences of bone…[4]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate
    Bone Metastasis Testicular Metastasis Lytic Bone Metastasis

    Adenocarcinoma of the prostate is histologically the commonest form of prostate malignancy. It is often asymptomatic until advanced or metastatic disease leads to symptoms of obstructive uropathy or bone pain respectively. Diagnosis depends upon digital rectal palpation, levels of prostate-specific antigen and…[5]

  • Aplastic Anemia
    Bone Metastasis

    Aplastic anemia is a form of anemia due to failure in bone marrow production of leukocytes, erythrocytes and platelets, resulting in peripheral blood pancytopenia. Fatigue is the most common presentation as it is the first symptom of low red blood cell count. Fatigue also sets in when there is a lack of hemoglobin in…[6]

  • Myelodysplasia
    Bone Metastasis

    Myelodysplasia, or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), is a group of hematopoietic disorders characterized by dysmyelopoiesis and cytopenias. Abnormal hematopoiesis may include erythrocytes, granulocytes and megakaryocytes. Initial stages of MDS may be characterized by macrocytic anemia with mild thrombocytopenia or…[7]

  • Adenocarcinoma of the Colon
    Testicular Metastasis Lytic Bone Metastasis
  • Malignant Melanoma
    Cardiac Metastasis Testicular Metastasis

    Malignant melanoma is a tumor arising from melanocytes. Immune System There are studies that have found chances of melanoma in immune-suppressed patients are almost 6 times than the general population. This weakening of the immune-system increases the chances of developing melanoma. Skin Patients with melanoma…[8]

  • Bronchogenic Carcinoma
    Cardiac Metastasis Testicular Metastasis

    Bronchogenic carcinoma is the leading cause of cancer death throughout the world and tobacco smoking is shown to be the single most important risk factor. Symptoms may include cough, dyspnea, hemoptysis and chest pain and the diagnosis is made using clinical, imaging and histopathologic criteria. Despite available…[9]
