The treatment and survival outcome of acute leukemia in women is generally similar to that of men. However, acute leukemia in women poses additional challenges in clinical practice. In addition to important precautions during therapy, such as prevention of abnormal uterine bleeding in premenopausal women and therapy during pregnancy, women who are survivors of acute leukemia face unique and potentially long-term health-related problems. In this review, we address the aforementioned issues, as well as the various health and psychosocial challenges faced by women who survive childhood leukemia during their path to adulthood. Finally, we address the issue of therapy-related acute leukemia in the category of women who are survivors of breast and ovarian cancer.
