Incidence of Neutropenic Enterocolitis Study in Acute Myeloid Leukemia Patients During Intensive Therapy

Brief description of study

This is the first prospective study on digestive affections in an homogeneous cohort of hematological patients. These affections are unknown in neutropenic patients with digestive symptoms after induction or consolidation courses pour AML although causing high morbi-mortality rates (infections, denutrition, loss of autonomy).

The aim of the study is to evaluate incidence of NE by clinical signs and with a systematic CT scan performed at day 5 of fever during aplastic period. An early diagnostic could decrease complications and evaluate gravity criteria which could imply surgery therapy.

The physician will performe a CTscan with injection during the induction and/or every consolidation, at the same time as the thoracic CTscan (to research an invasive fungal bronchopulmonary infection), in front of a febrile neutropenia with persistent fever after 5 days of antibiotics and presence of digestive signs.

The clinical, microbiological, radiological symptoms will be registered at every time of febrile neutropenia with digestive symptoms at induction and each consolidation courses. The patient will be get out of the study when the AML is refractory, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is required or if whenever he want. The last visit will be at the end of consolidation courses.
