Expert Video - What are the symptoms of AML-MRC or tAML?
Expert Dr. Sandra Kurtin explains that the signs of acute myeloid leukemia with myelodysplasia-related changes (AML-MRC) and treatment-related acute myeloid leukemia (tAML) are different from AML that develops on its own, or “de novo.” With these types of AML, you may have low levels of white and red blood cells and platelets. In de novo AML, which develops without a previous condition, the white blood cell count is normally going up, sometimes very high. Symptoms of AML-MRC and tAML can also include fever, infections, bleeding or bruising easily and feeling tired.
