Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) presents as a spectrum of disease that warrants careful diagnostic and prognostic considerations, including immunophenotyping and risk stratification based on multiple molecular markers. Best practices for the diagnosis, prognosis estimations, treatment, and monitoring of a 68-year-old female patient with newly diagnosed CLL are reviewed. Following determination that the patient is high risk with a poor prognosis, treatment options are reviewed using a shared decision-making model.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing take responsibility for the content, quality, and scientific integrity of this CME/CNE activity.
