Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia
Help me code for diagnosis year :
A slowly progressing type of myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative disease in which too many myelomonocytes (a type of white blood cell) are in the bone marrow, crowding out other normal blood cells, such as white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. Also called chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.
The physician will run tests to exclude the BCR-ABL1 fusion gene, the rearrangement of PDGFRA or PDGFRB. The physician uses the information from these tests to do a diagnosis of exclusion (clinical diagnosis) of Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia.
