Hematological malignancies mostly occur in elderly patients, and the combined effects of aging and the mechanisms of hematological malignancies increase the complexity of frailty and treatment. Frailty is associated with poor therapeutic response, increased toxicity, and poor survival in elderly patients with hematological malignancies, making frailty assessment even more important. The frailty assessment of elderly patients with appropriate assessment tools can help determine the tolerance and prognosis of treatment, and can provide individualized treatment for elderly patients with hematological malignancies. Hematological malignancies are heterogeneous and require the development of disease-specific frailty assessment tools based on disease characteristics.
