Bone marrow smears from 21 untreated patients with ALL have been morphologically analysed. There was a positive correlation between the percentages of lymphoid cells with amoeboid movement configuration (AMC) and the mitotic indices. A high proportion of cells with AMC seems to indicate a more favourable prognosis in spite of differences in subsequent treatment. It is suggested that studies of the incidence of AMC may serve as a prognostic tool in ALL.
