Monocytic leukemia is a type of myeloid leukemia characterized by a dominance of monocytes in the marrow. When the monocytic cells are predominantly monoblasts, it is subclassified into monoblastic leukemia.

Like myeloid leukemia, monocytic leukemia is almost always broken down into "acute" and "chronic":

Acute monocytic leukemia is far more commonly referenced than the chronic variety. However, the chronic variety is a valid diagnostic entry.[1][2]
