BACKGROUND Mixed phenotype acute leukemia (MPAL) represents a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. The European Group for the Immunological Classification of Leukemias (EGIL) scoring system unambiguously defines MPAL expressing aberrant lineage markers. Discussions surrounding it have focused on scoring details, and information is limited regarding its(More)
BACKGROUND Most minimal residual disease-directed treatment interventions in current treatment protocols for acute lymphoblastic leukemia are based on bone marrow testing, which is a consequence of previous studies showing the superiority of bone marrow over peripheral blood as an investigational material. Those studies typically did not explore the(More)
BACKGROUND Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in children is rare. Although more resistant to chemotherapy than acute lymphoblastic leukemia, its responsiveness and survival rates have considerably improved during the last 15 years by virtue of intensification of chemotherapy and due to the better supportive care. Relapses still remain the main cause of treatment(More)
BACKGROUND Wilson's disease (WD) is an autosomal recessive disorder of copper metabolism. The objective of this study is to present diagnostic pitfalls and long time follow-up data in Wilson disease. PATIENTS/METHODS We studied 21 WD patients and 14 heterozygote carriers aged 2-43 years, retrospectively. 18 WD patients presented liver disease, three had(More)
Comparative genomic hybridisation (CGH) allows to detect genetic abnormalities associated with poor prognosis in subset of patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Amplification of 2p13-16 represents an adverse genetic sign especially in extranodal DLBCL. In the present case, 2p13-16 amplification was revealed by CGH in extranodal DLBCL. It was(More)
BACKGROUND Prognosis of children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL)--the most common cancer in childhood, has improved remarkably over the last 40 years. The authors report the treatment outcome in children with ALL cured according to ALL-BFM 90 Study protocol in the Czech Republic during the first half of nineties. METHODS AND RESULTS Children aged(More)
Glucose-6-phosphate isomerase (GPI) deficiency, a genetic disorder responsible for chronic nonspherocytic hemolytic anemia, is the second most common red blood cell glycolytic enzymopathy. We report three patients from two unrelated families of Czech and Slovak origin with macrocytic hemolytic anemia due to GPI deficiency. The first patient had 15% of(More)
We describe a case of a 16-year-old girl with Wilson disease, which was initially presented as Coombs-negative haemolytic anaemia and acute liver failure. The diagnosis was based on the findings of low ceruloplasmin serum level and high copper levels both in serum and 24-hour urinary excretion. The patient underwent orthotopic liver transplantation. A(More)
BACKGROUND Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most frequent childhood malignancy. Treatment has been unified in the middle of 1980 in the Czech Republic. In 2002-2007 children and adolescents with acute lymphoblastic leukemia were treated in an international randomized trial ALL-IC BFM 2002 in the Czech Republic. 291 patients aged 1-18 years were(More)
