Excerpt

Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) are uncommon blood cancers that are classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as "mixed myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative diseases." CMML and JMML each start with one or more acquired changes (mutations) to the DNA of a single cell called a "monocyte" (a type of blood cell).
