And so, the doctor recommended to do bone marrow aspiration to confirm the above results.
So he made the bone marrow aspiration after 3 days and the dignosis is :
A case of Acute Monoblastic Leuckemia with differentiation(M5b).

CD 14 : positive
CD 13 : positive
CD 33 : positive

CD 2,CD 10,CD 34 ,CD 7,CD 19 : Negative.

N.B : He was suffer from blood sugar from long time (about 15 years).

After that he went to hospital to take a Chemical treatment for about 4 days and his case bcame good ,but after that he suffer a lot from the side effects from the chemical treatment and became in a very bad conditions and the doctors want to contiou that treatment for another 3 days .

So I ask you what is your advise to him and what about the chemical treatment ? and what about his chance to be survival?
