Description

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of cancer that affects the bone marrow and blood. It is characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells, called myeloblasts, which crowd out normal blood cells. In some cases, the bone marrow may also contain an increased number of eosinophils, which are a type of white blood cell. These abnormal eosinophils can cause a variety of symptoms, including fever, fatigue, and an increased risk of infection. Treatment for AML with abnormal eosinophils typically involves chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
