#Tweetorial Just finished 4 weeks on the leukemia service at @UCCancerCenter. We saw a number of patients present with a new diagnosis of acute leukemia and hyperleukocytosis, our index of concern for the development of leukostasis was dependent on if they had AML or ALL.
In 1982 Lichtman et al wrote about hyperleukocytic leukemias. The leukocrit (packed WBC volume) was described in AML, ALL, and CLL. Due to the larger mean cell volume of myeloblasts, a higher leukocrit was observed in AML compared to ALL and CLL.
The pathophysiology of leukostasis is thought to be driven in part by blood viscosity. A higher leukocrit and hematocrit correlates with a higher blood viscosity.

"Santa Susana Field Laboratory (#SSFL / #Rocketdyne) burned in the #WoolseyFire, threatening toxic exposures from contaminated dust, smoke, ash & soil. The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) denies risk that it created by delaying the long promised cleanup." -@PSRLA
