Answer

An interventional radiology consultation should be made for placement of a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line. A gynecology consultation should be obtained for women with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) who have heavy vaginal bleeding or who are pregnant at the time of diagnosis.
