Age:4 years
Sex:Male description of diagnosis ALL(Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia)is a type of leukemia, in which white blood cells are produced who do not fight infection, these are abnormal cells that rapidly reproduce causing a crowded bone marrow. Acute Of short duration, but severe Lymphoblastic immature lymphocyte a lymphocyte is a small variation of a white blood cell(leukocyte), with one round nucleus A white blood cell or a leukocyte Leukemia Leukemia is a type of blood cancer. It develops in the bone marrow. Radiation Therapy
uses high energy rays to kill/damage cancer cells
this type of treatment is rarely given to a child Sanctuary Therapy
treats the leukemia that might be hiding the the brain and/or the spinal fluid
intrathecal chemotherapy- chemotherapy drugs deliver directly to the spinal fluid
cranial radiation- radiation treatment to the head to kill any leukemia cells that may have been hiding there Circulatory System- since leukemia is a cancer in the bone marrow, it creates abnormal white blood cells, and crowds the bone marrow, disabling the healthy cells from doing their jobs Immune System- the white blood cells can't fight diseases because of the crowded bone marrow Complete Blood Count(CBC)-a CBC is a blood test that measures the number & type of blood cells in your blood
presence of blast cells-immature cells that are not circulating blood
too many white abnormal blood cells; not enough red Bone marrow aspiration & biopsy
needle is used to get an example of the bone marrow(from the hip)
leukemia cells found X-ray
determines whether or not the cancer has spread to other organs
