Leukemia is the most common children cancer. It represents 25 to 30% of all new diagnosed cancer cases in children younger than 15 years. The mechanisms and causes for developing leukemia in children are not well known, but there are some relationships with environmental risk factors. Some data from European Cancer Registers show, that incidence rate of leukemia in children has increased by 0,7% per year in the years from 1997 to1999. There are evident differences between west and east European countries. In Slovenia, due to rare cases of children leukemia, we can’t describe the trend in the years from 1998 to 2008.
