Management of orthodontic treatment requires specific attention when patients develop medical problems that affect their general health or require treatments that might not be compatible with orthodontic care. This article describes the interface of orthodontic and medical care in a patient who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia midway through her orthodontic treatment.
