Case 52 – update 2

Great discussion so far regarding staging and options for treatment.

Overall I think the consensus is to treat this lady with imatinib.

The patient commences treatment and BCR-ABL1 shows a major molecular response at 18 months.

At this clinic appointment she discloses that she wishes to be come pregnant.  What is your advice to her? options for management?
