A case of acute leukaemia in a 38-years old female

A case of acute leukaemia in a 38-years old female AbstractLeukaemia is cancer that starts in blood-forming tissues, such as bone marrow, and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the bloodstream. The stem cells usually develop into a type of white blood cell called myeloblasts which do not mature into healthy white blood cells. The leukaemia cells are unable to do their usual work and can build up in the blood and bone marrow so there is less space for healthy white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. Anemia is a major sign but diagnosis is provided only microscopic examination of peripheral blood smear. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png ARS Medica Tomitana de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractLeukaemia is cancer that starts in blood-forming tissues, such as bone marrow, and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the bloodstream. The stem cells usually develop into a type of white blood cell called myeloblasts which do not mature into healthy white blood cells. The leukaemia cells are unable to do their usual work and can build up in the blood and bone marrow so there is less space for healthy white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. Anemia is a major sign but diagnosis is provided only microscopic examination of peripheral blood smear.
