Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors discuss the clinical course and ophthalmologic findings in a 67-year-old woman with acute myelogenous leukemia who developed leukemic infiltration of the choroid and the central nervous system during treatment. With chemotherapy and local radiation, the patient had a complete response. The authors conclude that with aggressive treatment with radiation and chemotherapy, some patients with acute myelogenous leukemia can enjoy long- term freedom from disease.
