Leukemia is a malignant tumor in the blood system, mainly divided into acute leukemia and chronic leukemia.

Acute leukemia can be divided into acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). ALL mainly occurs in children and is a malignant proliferative disease of the hematopoietic system with B-cell or T-cell early antigen markers on leukemia cells. AML is the most common type of acute leukemia in adults, accounting for about 80% of acute leukemia in patients over 20 years old, and can occur at any age, but mainly in the elderly. It can be primary or secondary at diagnosis.

Chronic leukemia can be divided into chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). CML is characterized by abnormal elevation of peripheral blood leukocytes, increased numbers of neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils, and Philadelphia chromosome (Ph chromosome) in more than 95% of patients. CLL is a mature B-cell tumor characterized by monoclonal small B-lymphocyte proliferation in peripheral blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, liver, and spleen. It is accompanied by progressive accumulation of bone marrow failure in the later stages.

Please note that the above classification is only one possibility, and the specific type may need to be determined based on the specific symptoms of the patient and the doctor's diagnosis.
