Acute leukemia and pregnancy - some postulates

Abstract


The aim of chemotherapy of acute leukemia in pregnant women is to save two lives. Abortion is not mandatory in acute leukemia as this disease is curable by chemotherapy. Effective treatment of pregnant women with acute leukemia diagnosis is now practiced not only by large clinics, it is also provided by regional centers. Overall 5-year actual survival for acute myeloid leukemia is 64%, for APL and ALL - 25%. All the children born by the patients during chemotherapy are healthy at maximal follow-up of 19 years, minimal - 11 months.
