Pediatric Oncology and Cancer
Today Pediatric cancers are highly treatable, but most of children die with malignancies because of inadequate medical care. Leukemia is cancer of the blood-forming tissues, which includes the bone marrow and the lymphatic system. Acute myeloid leukemia can arise in patients with an underlying hematological disorder, or as a consequence of prior therapy. It involves the abnormal proliferation and differentiation of a clonal population of myeloid stem cells. Hodgkin lymphoma, a B cell–derived cancer, is one of the most common lymphomas.
