Bone marrow aspirate showing acute myeloid leukemia, arrows indicate Auer rods. The 8;translocation appears to be more frequent in the young and is rare beyond the age of 50 years.

A number of other cytogenetic abnormalities are known to associate with a poor prognosis and a high risk of relapse after treatment. AML accounts for 1. A review of the literature and a risk assessment”. As a pioneer in the use of the light microscope in pathology, Virchow was the first to describe the abnormal excess of white blood cells in people with the clinical syndrome described by Velpeau and Bennett.

Specific cytogenetic abnormalities can be found in many people with AML; the types of chromosomal abnormalities often have prognostic significance. About half of people with AML have “normal” cytogenetics; they fall into an intermediate risk group. There is some geographic variation in the incidence of AML. Some people with AML may experience swelling of the gums because of infiltration of leukemic cells into the gum tissue.


The prognostic importance of other mutated genes e. The specific type of postremission therapy is individualized based on a person’s prognostic factors see above and general health. It soon turned out that most t 8;21 q22;q22 cases were LMA subtype M2; only occasional leukaemias with this abnormality have been classified as subtype M1 or, even more rarely, subtype M4. The term “leukemia” was coined by Rudolf Virchowthe renowned German pathologistin Archived from the original on 7 August Acute myelogenous leukemia, acute nonlymphocytic leukemia ANLLacute myeloblastic leukemia, acute granulocytic leukemia [1].

Mast cell leukemia Mast cell sarcoma Systemic mastocytosis. The WHO classification of acute myeloid leukemia attempts to be more clinically useful and to produce more meaningful prognostic information than the FAB criteria. Multiple cases of AML developing in a family at a rate higher than predicted by chance alone have been reported.

Survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had aaguda increased rate of AML, [15] as did radiologists exposed to high levels of X-rays prior to the adoption of modern radiation safety practices.

Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.

Even after complete remission is achieved, leukemic cells likely remain in numbers too small to be detected with current diagnostic techniques. Most signs and symptoms of AML are caused by the replacement of normal blood cells with leukemic cells.
