OBJECTIVE To study the clinicopathologic features of aggressive natural killer cell leukemia (ANKL). METHODS The clinical and pathologic features were analyzed in 10 patients with ANKL. The complete blood count, peripheral blood smears, bone marrow aspirates and bone marrow biopsies were studied. Immunophenotypic analysis was carried out by flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry. T-cell receptor (TCR) γ gene rearrangement was studied by PCR method. RESULTS The most frequent hematologic…

TLDR
The rarity of the NK-cell tumors limits the ability to standardiz procedures for the diagnosis and clinical management and efforts should be made to encourage multi-institutional registries.

TLDR
P phenotypic features would suggest that ENKTL and ANKL cells do represent the neoplastic counterpart of the mature CD56+bright NK cells, which undergo activation and malignant transformation after Epstein–Barr virus infection.
