Blood tests and a bone marrow aspiration to confirm the diagnosis are performed. The blood test may reveal a reduced number of normal blood cells and an large amount of abnormal cells in the bone marrow. Acute leukaemia is often curable. Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia has a far better prognosis and survival rate than Acute myeloid leukaemia.

The treatment modalities include chemotherapy. Radiotherapy is indicated when the malignancy has spread to the brain and spinal cord. Regular blood transfusions may be needed to prevent anaemia and bleeding. Infections need to be treated with appropriate medication. The best available treatment for acute leukaemia is to replace the affected bone marrow with a healthy one. As this is a serious surgical procedure, it carries some risk. Stem cell transplant, one of the latest advancements, may also be considered.
