The chronic leukemias can also occur in the two main white blood cell branches--lymphoid (CLL) or myeloid (CML) cells.The chronic forms are often more indolent and less aggressive.
Generally, acute leukemias can be classified as either lymphoid or myeloid based on the lineage of the blastic cells, but rarely blasts of both lineages can be present (so-called bilineage acute leukemias) or blasts can express antigens of more than 1 lineage (so-called biphenotypic acute leukemias).
