Comprehensive oral health management of paediatric population with acute lymphoblastic leukemia

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Karthik S
ABSTRACT:EAmong the childhood oncological conditions, leukemia constitutes 30% with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) of 75% and peak incidence around 4 years of age. Etiology links to clonal proliferation of lymphoid precursors with arrested maturation, with origin in lymphoid cells of different lineages, resulting in B cell/ T cell/ mixed nature. Due to its response to chemotherapy, acute lymphoblastic leukemia is the first one to be cured in majority of paediatric population.
