Causes

Damage to DNA in the bone marrow cause acute myeloid leukemia. Due to this damage production of blood cells goes wrong. Bone marrow starts producing immature blood cells that later develop in the leukemic cells. These abnormal cells are unable to perform normal functions and these cells buildups in the normal cells and make a crowd. This may be due to the following reasons.

  • Genetic mutations
  • Exposure to Radiation
  • Chemotherapy drugs
  • Other genetic disorders like Down’s syndrome
  • Other blood disorders like myelodysplasia, myelofibrosis, polycythemia or thrombocythemia
