This webpage explains about leukemia in children, specifically chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is uncommon in children. Chronic myelogenous leukemia is a leukemia in which too many immature white blood cells are produced in the marrow. The white cells normally fight infection. With this disease, the bone marrow makes too many of these abnormal cells that do not mature correctly. The marrow continues to produce these abnormal cells which crowd out other healthy blood cells.
