Description

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with maturation is a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. It is a type of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in which the cancer cells are immature, but have some features of mature cells. This type of AML is usually seen in older adults and is less common than other types of AML. The immature cells in AML with maturation are not able to produce healthy blood cells, leading to a decrease in the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets in the body. Treatment for AML with maturation typically involves chemotherapy and/or stem cell transplantation.
