According to the phenotypes seen, the cases were divided into five groups, pre-B ALL, B-ALL, T-ALL, MO-ALL, and undifferentiated ALL. Each group was subdivided, resulting in 11 defined immunologic subtypes. Correlations between clinical and laboratory features were investigated at presentation… CONTINUE READING
