Abstract: A 65-year-old women was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML; normal cytogenetics, NPM1 mutated, FLT3-ITD wild type). Preinduction screening geriatric assessment (GA) did not reveal any significant deficit, because she was independent of basic activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), had normal cognition, and scored 10 (range 0-12) on the short physical performance battery (SPPB). She underwent standard 7 1 3 induction and achieved a complete remission, although her course was complicated by neutropenic sepsis and bacteremia. She is being evaluated for postremission therapy. Would you recommend a follow-up GA at this time? © 2019 American Society of Hematology. All rights reserved.
