The Chernobyl and It’s Long Term Consequence: Clinical Cases of Leukemia


Ioan Sorin Stratulat *,Sergiu Coseri

The Chernobyl accident that occurred 30 years ago was one of the worst nuclear disasters ever. Although it’s effects have been the subject of several articles, the role of its repercussions in the etiology of hematological disorders is not clearly revealed. Studies have shown a causal relationship between radiation exposure and the incidence of thyroid cancers but in the case of acute lymphoblastic leukemia a correlation could not have been made. However, due to its increasing incidence, there seems to be differences between adult and in utero exposure. Through its geographical position, Romania was affected especially in the North East region. We present the case of acute lymphoblastic leukemia of a patient from Iasi with exposure during pregnancy, post-partum period and the effects on her and the fetus.
