Childhood acute myeloid leukaemia (AML)
Childhood acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a fast-developing type of blood cancer that affects blood-producing cells in the bone marrow.
It's a rare type of childhood leukaemia. Around 100 children a year are diagnosed with AML in the UK.
The information in this section is aimed at adults caring for a child or young person with blood cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust has information designed specifically for young people.
Adults can also develop AML but the treatment and outlook is different to childhood AML.
