[…] Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is a myeloproliferative disease also referred to as chronic myeloid leukemia. […] Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), sometimes also referred to as chronic myeloid leukemia, is a type of blood cancer.[2]

  • Primary Myelofibrosis

    Leukemic transformation, i.e. progression to acute myeloid leukemia, has also been reported. […] PMF is a hematopoietic malignancy that shows certain similarities to diseases like chronic myeloid leukemia and polycythemia vera. […] This proto-oncogene is generally referred to as myeloproliferative leukemia protein (MPL), and the respective mutation provokes constitutive activation[3]

  • Sideroblastic Anemia

    Leukemia carries a worse prognostic sign, while thrombocytosis constitutes a good prognostic sign. […] Mortality from sideroblastic anemia is mainly from hemochromatosis following leukemia or blood transfusions.[8]

  • Congenital Neutropenia
    Acute Leukemia Leukemia

    The incidence of leukemia and mortality from sepsis in patients with severe congenital neutropenia receiving long-term G-CSF therapy. […] Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is also indicated in CN patients who developed myelodsyplastic syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia. […] CN patients are at high risks of developing myelodsyplastic syndrome and acute myeloid leukemia, and since most patients receive long-term G-CSF treatment[9]


Leukemia is a neoplastic disorders of white blood cells. Based on their origin, myeloid or lymphoid, leukemia can be subdivided into two groups with acute and chronic forms.
