Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in childhood is a serious disease that can affect growth and the attainment of maximal peak bone mass. The latter has recently been recognized as a risk factor for the development of osteoporosis later in life. To determine long-term effects of the disease itself and its treatment, we assessed the bone status of a group of long-term survivors of childhood ALL, all treated with high doses of steroids (dexamethasone) and methotrexate and without cranial… CONTINUE READING
