Sarah Vaughan is a 34 year old accountant who is married with no children. She was recently diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) following a history of recurrent fevers, easily bruised skin, and a general feeling of lethargy and weakness. Diagnosis was confirmed by blood tests and a bone marrow biopsy, which Mrs. Vaughan found rather unpleasant. Mrs. Vaughan has been advised that she will undergo treatment in three stages. One stage includes total body irradiation, after which she will have to avoid going out in the sun for several months.

1. Mrs. Vaughan is slightly unusual in presenting with ALL. Which adult patient groups are most likely to develop ALL?

2. What are three stages of treatment for ALL?

3. What is total body irradiation, why is it carried out, and why will Mrs. Vaughan need to avoid direct sunlight afterwards?

4. Mrs. Vaughan is of child-bearing age. What should she be told about her fertility now and in the future?

Your answers should be in a word document form. Please answer all the questions and follow directions.
