Blast cells - Acute or chronic leukemia? Mnemonic!

Hope you are having a good day so far! :D

Acute leukemias are characterized by a predominance of blasts. Chronic leukemias are characterized by proliferation of lymphoid or hematopoietic cells that are more mature than those of acute leukemias.

How to remember which leukemia has blast cells? "ABCD"
Acute Blasts, Chronics Don't.

Other characteristics of AML cells: Aeur rods, MPO positive.

That's all!
