AML: If you have been accurately diagnosed with AML, further subtyping of your diagnosis must take place before treatment is started or prognosis is estimated. This is based on examination of cell morphology, immunophenotype, genetics (karyotype), and clinical features (age at diagnosis; functional status and comorbidities). Age >55 at time of diagnosis is a negative prognosticator.
