A 15-year-old Mexican boy presented with an L2 type acute lymphoid leukemia (ALL). Occasional granulated and hand mirror cells were observed, and enzyme histochemistry showed the blasts to be positive for acid phosphatase, beta glucuronidase, and alpha napthyl butyrate esterase. Immunologic studies showed the cells to stain for terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase and common ALL antigen and to react with B4 (90 per cent), B1 (60 per cent), and B2 (37 per cent) monoclonal antibodies.
