Dr. Seth Jason KoenigDrs. Sameer Khanijo and Seth Koenig published in Thoracic Clinical Lymphoma Myeloma & Leukemia

April, 2017

The article, ‘Thoracic Complications in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia,’ sheds light on the pulmonary complications of a common disease, chronic lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). This paper categorizes the types of pulmonary diseases that present alongside with CLL, and as a direct result of CLL or its treatment. Drs. Khanijo and Koenig hope that armed with this new data, clinicians taking care of patients with CLL consider these complications when a typical diagnosis, such as pneumonia, does not improve.
