In this post, I link to and excerpt from the PedsCases’ podcast and script, Approach to Acute Leukemia in Children, by amarjot padda, Sep 03, 2016.
The script is an excellent brief review of the topic.
All that follows is from the above resource.
This episode presents an approach to acute leukemia in children. Listeners will learn about the epidemiology, etiology, and pathogenesis of acute leukemia. Listeners will also develop an approach to the clinical presentation and initial management of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This podcast was developed by Amarjot Padda in collaboration with Dr. Bev Wilson, a Pediatric Oncologist at the Stollery Children’s Hospital.
