In brief: Weakness, pallor
Leukemia causes a displacement of red cells and effective white cells by a malignant line of white cells that are not effective.
The consequences are weakness due to lack of oxygenation, frequent infections, abnormal bleeding (like bruising in many parts of the skin, and sometimes bone pain. This needs immediate attention from a pediatric oncologist.
