Chronic Eosinophilic Leukemia

Disease Overview Chronic eosinophilic leukemia (CEL) is a chronic myeloproliferative disorder of unknown etiology in which a clonal proliferation of eosinophilic precursors results in persistently increased numbers of eosinophils in the blood, bone marrow, and peripheral tissues. In CEL, the eosinophil count is greater than or equal to 1.5 × 109 /L in the blood.[1] To make a diagnosis of CEL, there should be evidence for clonality of the eosinophils or an increase in blasts in the blood or...

Treatment of localized transitional cell cancer of the renal pelvis and ureter may include the following:

  • Surgery (nephroureterectomy or segmental resection of ureter).
  • A clinical trial of fulguration.
  • A clinical trial of laser surgery.
  • A clinical trial of segmental resection of the renal pelvis.
  • A clinical trial of regional chemotherapy.
  • A clinical trial of regional biologic therapy.
