Other than time of onset, what's the difference between an acute leukemia and a chronic leukemia?
Are there any major differences to look for in looking at peripheral blood and bone marrow smears that detect a major difference?
Oh and I already know the difference in lymphocytic vs. myeloid by the way..thanks :)
Thank you. THAT'S what I was looking for!

Acute forms of leukemias signify rapidly progressing diseases with a predominance of highly immature cell-forms or blasts as opposed to chronic leukemias which denote slowly progressing diseases with greater cell numbers and with more mature rather than immature cells present in the peripheral blood.
