Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia represents the most common leukaemia among adults in Western Countries. Incidence rate is similar in Europe and US and ranges between 4 to 6 cases per 100,000 person per year. In US about 15,720 new cases of CLL, and more than 12,000 in EU, are expected in 2014. The incidence increases by age, with more than 70% of patients being older than 65 years at diagnosis. Though the median age at diagnosis is 72 years, in the last decades CLL is more often diagnosed also in younger individuals, with almost 15% of patients of 55 years old or younger.
