Cytogenetically normal acute myeloid leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia in Cytogenetically normal acute leukemia is just one type of a blood-forming disease tumor called acute myeloid leukemia. Early blood cells in normal bone marrow develop into several forms of blood cells: white blood cells that shield the body from infection, red blood cells that carry oxygen, and platelets that play a role in blood clotting. The large number of abnormal cells in the bone marrow hinders the formation of functional white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. CN-AML patients have a shortage of mature blood cells, a lack of white blood cells leads to increased susceptibility to infections, a poor number of red blood cells causes exhaustion and weakness, and a decrease in platelet volume may result in rapid bleeding and abnormal bleeding.
