Leukemia is a heterogeneous group of hematologic malignancies that arise from the dysfunctional proliferation of developing leukocytes. It can be categorized as either chronic or acute and as myelocytic or lymphocytic. Treatment depends on the type of leukemia but generally involves chemotherapy. Multiple risk factors contribute to the development of leukemia, including radiation exposure, viral infections, and genetic syndromes. The most common presenting features of leukemia are fever, lethargy, and bleeding, but it can also present nonspecifically. A prompt diagnosis relies on a thorough history and physical examination. These may be aided by laboratory testing, particularly of the peripheral blood and bone marrow.
