Acute myeloid leukaemia in Afghanistan: Understanding an unfamiliar landscape.
The paper by Noor et al. in this issue provides important and interesting data on the incidence and outcomes of patients with acute myeloid leukaemia in Afghanistan. The age of patients is much lower than we are used to seeing in the West, reflecting in part the particular demographics of the country; these data provide an important first step to identifying areas for improvement.
