Chronic lymphocytic leukemia


The patient has a known history of diagnosed chronic lymphocytic leukemia (Binet stage B).

This type of leukemia is considered the most common type, it primarily affects adults around 65-70 years old.

The diagnosis is made through blood workup but characterization of size and distribution of lymphadenopathy, and splenomegaly or hepatomegaly is important for staging.

Binet stage B is characterized by three or more areas of enlarged lymph nodes, especially in the inguinal and axillary regions with no anemia or thrombocytopenia associated.
