    Leukemia

    There are 4 major kinds of leukemia:

    Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL)

    Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)

    Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)

    Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)

    Acute leukemia's progress very rapidly, and chronic leukemia's progress slowly. Lymphocytic and myelogenous leukemia refer to the two different kinds of cells from which leukemias start. Lymphocytic leukemias develop from lymphocytes in the bone marrow. Myelogenous leukemia develops from either granulocyte white blood cells or monocyte white blood cells.

  • Perhaps the answer that you are looking for is Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL).

    "The terms acute and chronic discriminate between leukemias of primarily immature (acute) or mature (chronic) leukocytes"

    Haematological malignancies or leukaemia.

    ALL does not refer to the group of disorders, it is just one type of leukaemia.
