Earlier, the disease was classified according to life expectancy into chronic and acute. Nowadays, it is being classified according the maturity attained by the malignant cells. The presence of immature cells is an indication of acute leukemia, whereas a presence of mature cells is an indication of chronic leukemia. There is also another type of classification based on the affected cell type. They are lymphocytes and myeloid cells.
