CAMPO GIMENEZ, María del; SERRANO MARTINEZ, Ana; GARCIA-ALCALA HERNANDEZ, María  and  CUEVAS SANCHEZ, Carlos. Gingivitis as a first symptom of acute myeloblastic leukemia. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.1, pp.32-35. ISSN 2386-8201.

Hematologic disorders, including acute leukemia, may present oral manifestations as initial evidence of the disease. Acute leukemia represents almost 10% of all types of neoplasia. Acute myeloid leukemia is more frequent in adults. Symptoms are secondary to cytopenias and to infiltration of different organs. Since these are aggressive malignancies, early diagnosis is key to establishing a treatment as soon as possible. We should thus consider these disorders in differential diagnosis when we detect the presence of long-standing fever or other warning signs.

Keywords : Gingivitis; Hematoma; Fever; Leukemia.
