The Location Of The Original Cell In Leukemia?
Assalamu alaikum, I’m yaya.
Hello Nurhidaya, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Leukemia is an acute or chronic neoplasm of blood-forming cells in the bone marrow and blood, the bone marrow consists of blood cells in immature forms called myeloblasts and lymphoblasts.
Normally the cells of origin (myeloblasts and lymphoblasts) are absent in the peripheral blood, but impaired myleoblast function causes acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) a condition in which there is an accumulation of mature myelocytes in the peripheral blood, this causes hemopoetic failure, this causes symptoms of anemia, bleeding from orifices. and recurrent infections, it more often affects the older age group, is very rare in the young. When there is excess production of lymphoblasts in the bone marrow it causes acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), in this condition the possibility of recurrent infections such as pneumonia is more pronounced, the patient will experience shortness of breath, dizziness and fatigue, this condition affects children commonly known as leukemia. .
Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
