A type of
acute myeloid leukemia (AML) that is caused by previous
treatment with chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
Therapy-related acute myeloid leukemia is an aggressive (fast-growing)
cancer in which there are too many myeloblasts (immature
white blood cells) in the blood or bone marrow.
Therapy-related acute myeloid leukemia usually occurs within 7 years
after treatment. It is more common in
adults. Also called t-AML.
