Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) accounts for less than 1% of all new cancer cases in the UK, and 8% of all leukaemia subtypes combined (2014).[1-4]
In 2014, there were 758 new cases of ALL in the UK: 449 (59%) in males and 309 (41%) in females, giving a male:female ratio of around 15:10.[1-4] The

For ALL, there are few established risk factors therefore differences between countries largely reflect differences in diagnosis and data recording
