The Chronic Myeloid Leukemia is caused by the BCR-ABL gene formation encoding aberrant oncoprotein tyrosine kinase. The Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors (TKIs) induces durable deep molecular response, so elderly patient had concerned probably due to demography and epidemiological transition even if myelodysplasia syndrom is the most frequent homeopathy in elderly person. The review of literature about chemotherapy in elderly is rare and the studies found a comparable result as same as in adult [1]. The G8 oncodage tools is recommended by the international society of Oncogeriatry to screening the geriatric syndroms and should be completed by multi-dimensional geriatric assessment when the G8 score is inferior or egal to 14 [1].
