  Abstract:
  The incidence of leukemia in children aged from 0 to 14 years in Armenia was analyzed for the period from 1991 to 2002. During 12 years the incidence of leukemia was not changed substantially. The crude rate of the incidence of leukemia was comparable with data of many countries. But at the same time a comparatively high male/female incidence ratio was registered, which was also comparable with incidence ratio in some of both developed and developing countries. It may be supposed that the incidence of leukemia in children in Armenia is not connected with parental exposure to chemicals.
  Key words: Leukemia; Pediatric; Incidence; Armenia
