of the most common cancer. (Approximately 30% of cancer was found) in children.
- Acute lymphoblastic leukemia. (ALL). Found approximately 75% of
- Acute myeloblastic leukemia. (AML) or acute nonlymphoblastic leukemia (ANLL)
was approximately 20%.
- Acute undifferentiated leukemia. (AUL). Rare only 0.5%
- Acute mixed lineage leukemia. (AMLL) has two types:
- ALL. Cell embryos at the 2 myeloid associated antigens was
approximately 6% of patients with ALL.
- AML. Cell embryos at the 2 lymphoid associated antigens (LY +. AML)
was approximately 17% of patients with AML.
Types of chronic leukemia. The creation and accumulation of white blood and souls.
(Differentiated) were approximately 3%. Of leukemia in children at birth.
- Chronic myelocytic leukemia. (CML) has 2 types.
- Philadelphia chromosome positive. (Ph1 positive) CML.
- Juvenile CML (JCML).
- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia. (CLL) which is found very rare.
Acute leukemias in children: In addition to the cancer group, the
most common cancer among children then. Is an example of a cancer treatment that works well with Past we have no
anti-cancer chemotherapy. These children all died within the time 2-3 months. But now about 60%. Of these patients
can survive is up to. 5 year And most of these patients can be considered cured because medication can not even
stop to a cancer recurrence. Experience of treatment for these patients as a guideline for the treatment of various
types of cancer in children and adults.

regional differences. Industrial countries have higher incidence in the Asian region. In some countries, such as
Bar Africa, North and East.
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia Treatment
Treatment planning. Must consider some important factors.
- Diagnosis can be sure is. ALL based on bone marrow examination. View
characteristics of blast cells. Standard staining and cytochemical stains. And immunotyping. It is related to
prognosis and selection of appropriate treatments.
- SRETTHA as consideration and cooperation of parents in bringing patients to
