We have studied the immunological and cytogenetic features of 26 patients with acute leukaemia classified as biphenotypic according to a scoring system based on the number and lineage specificity of antigens expressed on the blast cells. The series included 19 adults (age >15 years) and seven children. The cases were distributed in four immunophenotypic groups: (1)coexpression of myeloid and B antigens, 18 cases (69 percent);(2)myeloid and T cell antigens, six (23 percent); (3) one case with… CONTINUE READING
