Overview

Hairy cell leukemia is found to approximately comprise 2% of all leukemias in the United States.[1] The incidence of hairy cell leukemia is approximately 3.2 per 1,000,000 individuals in the United States. The incidence of hairy cell leukemia increases with age; the median age at diagnosis is 58 years. Males are more commonly affected with hairy cell leukemia than females. The male to female ratio is approximately 4 to 1.[2]
