Children with CML are often tired and lethargic, suffer bone pain or a swollen abdomen due to an enlarged spleen.
How is chronic myeloid leukemia diagnosed?
Children with CML are treated according to a protocol drawn up by national and international experts. Treatment consists of tyrosine kinase inhibitors. This drug blocks the growth of the abnormal white blood cells. Your child will need to take these capsules or tablets for quite some time, but that will probably be of no bother to them.
Chance of recovery
Children with CML stand a good chance of survival. Don't be influenced too much by statistics. Every child and every situation is unique.
Children with chronic myeloid leukemia are treated in the hematology-oncology department.
