EHA Guidelines on Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemias in Adults
Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) is a disease of the elderly, and by far the most frequent overlap myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasm in adults. Aside from the chronic monocytosis that remains the cornerstone of its diagnosis, the clinical presentation of CMML includes dysplastic features, cytopenias, excess of blasts, or myeloproliferative features including high white blood cell count or splenomegaly. Prognosis is variable, with several prognostic scoring systems reported in recent years, and treatment is poorly defined.
For this 1 hour workshop, two of the authors will present the guidelines, illustrate their application in current clinical scenarios. A panel discussion with the lead authors of the EHA Guidelines will address questions submitted by the virtual audience.
