There is no clear consensus regarding the optimal management of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. Many patients are diagnosed at an advanced age and will die with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, but of other unrelated causes. A significant minority are diagnosed at an earlier age, or with more aggressive disease, and despite chemotherapy, are likely to die of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia. The infusion of autologous or allogeneic haemopoietic stem cells, following a variety of conditioning regimes, offers the possibility of longer remissions or even cure. We explore the key questions facing clinicians in this field: Who is it best to transplant? When is it best to transplant? How is it best to transplant?
