The immunohistochemical evaluation of acute leukemia specimens has been limited in the past due of the inability to detect many lineage-related antigens in paraffin sections. With the improvement in immunohistochemical methods as well as the introduction of new antibodies, these limitations are now reduced. To evaluate the diagnostic utility of paraffin section immunohistochemistry in the lineage determination of acute leukemias, 77 previously immunophenotyped acute leukemias were studied with… CONTINUE READING
