Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) Directory

Chronic myelogenous leukemia, or CML, is a rare cancer that is caused by the overproduction of white blood cells in large bones, the liver, spleen, and blood. The leukemia eventually invades other body organs. In the first phase (chronic), the white blood cells overproduce gradually and slowly. In the second phase (acute), the leukemia aggressively takes over the body. Treatments include bone marrow transplants, interferon-alpha medications, and more. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how chronic myelogenous leukemia is contracted, what it looks like, how to treat it, and much more.
