Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)


Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) is a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow... the spongy tissue inside bones where blood cells are made.

The word “acute” in acute lymphoblastic leukemia comes from the fact that the disease progresses rapidly and creates immature blood cells, rather than mature ones. The “lymphoblastic” in acute lymphoblastic leukemia refers to the white blood cells called lymphocytes, which ALL affects. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is also known as acute lymphocytic leukemia.

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is the most common type of cancer in children, and treatments result in a good chance for a cure.
