Consider adding the term
chronic myelomonocytic leukemia
def from MeSH - A myelodysplastic-myeloproliferative disease characterized by monocytosis, increased monocytes in the bone marrow, variable degrees of dysplasia, but an absence of immature granulocytes in the blood.
I could find 2 instances of this in MGI (searching for CMML) 1 annotated to leukemia and the other to chronic myelocytic leukemia. Based on the placement in MeSH this term should be a sibling to chronic myelocytic leukemia. In the DO the closest term I can find is myelodysplastic myeloproliferative cancer (definition: A bone marrow cancer that is located_in the bone marrow and results_in the production of too many white blood cells. The cancer possess both dysplastic and proliferative features but are not properly classified as either.) which is the parent term to juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia.
