It is defined as a disorder in which there is an involvement of the genetics. It is also referred as the cree encephalitis along with the pseudo torch syndrome. They were considered to be separate identities. This is a type of leuko dystrophy and is quite lethal within the first few years. It is autosomal [...]
It is defined as a condition in which there is a problem in the blood cells known as white blood cells. The blood cells are deposited in the bone marrow and there is a production of large number of white blood cells. It is the most common form of acute leukemia. Its incidence increases with [...]
It is defined as a condition in which there is a formation of the tumor which is benign in the nature. It can grow from different organs like colon, adrenal glands, pituitary and thyroid. They can become malignant at the later stages. Than they are called as an adeno carcinomas. In the benign case also [...]
There are many ways by which this disorder can be treated. It involves the use of chemotherapy which is divided into two phases involving the induction and post remission. The induction therapy helps to achieve the complete remission. It reduces the amount of leukemic cells by the undetectable levels and the consolidation therapy aim is [...]
There are many classifications which are linked to this disorder. It includes the world health organization classification, French American British classification and un common phenotypes of acute myeloid leukemia. In the world health organization classification the acute myeloid leukemia is more useful clinically and produces a good prognosis than the other classifications. The WHO contains [...]
This disorder is curable and it depends on the multiple prognostic factors. The single most important prognostic factor in AML is the cyto genetics. It tells us about the chromosomal structure of the cell. Some of them are associated with a good outcome. In the case of trans location in acute pro myelocytic leukemia around [...]
The cells which cause malignancy are the myeloblast. In the normal process of hematopoietic the myeloid precursor cells are the cells which form the myeloblast. The normal myelo blast can form the mature white blood cells. In the case of AML a single myeloblast can accumulate the genetic changes which freeze the cell in the [...]
It is mainly done with the help of complete blood cell count. In this there are more number of white blood cells which is a common finding and leads to the leukemic blast. There is a decrease in the platelets and red blood cell count. One can also see a decrease in the white blood [...]
There are number of factors which can cause this disorder. It includes the blood disorders, chemical exposures and genetics. It also includes the ionizing radiations also. There are pre leukemic blood disorders like myelo dysplastic syndrome or myelo proliferative disease which involves the AML. The exact risk factor depends on the type of MDS or [...]
The symptoms of the disease are caused due to the replacement of bone marrow with the leukemic cells which decreases the red blood cells, platelets and normal white blood cells. It leads to fatigue, shortness of the breath, easy bruising and bleeding. There is also an increased chance of infection. There are many risk factors [...]
