Causes and Development

CEL is generally caused by overactivation of the oncogene PDGFRA through a chromosome translocation event.

Prognosis; Complications

CEL is extremely manageable with the use of Gleevec, which suppresses the oncogenic effects of PDGFRA.

CEL may stay the same for many years, or it may progress quickly to acute leukemia.
