However, descriptive epidemiological reports on AML consider the disease as a single entity. Acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL) is an example of a truly unique AML subtype that has an easy-to-recognize morphology associated uniformly with distinct chromosomal and gene rearrangement… CONTINUE READING
