Neoplastic diseases are a constantly evolving field in terms of medico-legal evaluation, as a consequence of the fast-paced progress in both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. In particular, the treatment of leukosis has been gradually refined over the past two decades, obtaining results completely unhoped-for even in the late 80’s.

Hence the need for a medical-legal overview as consistent as possible to the recent scientific updates.
