To share and enhance best practice management of CML, experts and interested clinicians can discuss difficult or interesting CML patient cases here. Clinicians submit a brief history of the patient and the case for discussion (no more than 200 words) by posting it in this forum ("+ NEW TOPIC" button below).
Each clinical case will be forwarded to the iCMLf expert clinical panel for a brief independent response. Consideration should be given to patient confidentiality. Details that are not critical to the case can be changed to preserve anonymity.
As a full clinical history is necessary for accurate comment, cases and comments on the Forum are only accepted from clinicians. If individual patients have a specific question we encourage them to contact their healthcare provider.

Pregnancy and hydroxyurea

Dear Colleagues, we appreciate the suggestions posted on this case. They have been very educative and informative.
Interferon is not affordable. However, as at 31st October when I lasted discussed with the referring consultant, we agreed on leukapharesis. On the 3rd of November, I was disappointedly informed that the husband of the young girl, (22-year old primigravida) other family members and her obstetrician would prefer that the pregnancy be terminated. We have not been able to persuade them otherwise, and it does not appear the patient could do much in this case.
I would be able to provide latest information as soon as I have such.
Thank you for your interest.
