Concurrent Acute Myelofibrosis and Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in Childhood: Case Report and Review of the Literature.

08:00 EDT 19th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Concurrent Acute Myelofibrosis and Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in Childhood: Case Report and Review of the Literature."

Myelofibrosis is associated with a wide variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic bone marrow diseases, predominately myeloproliferative neoplasms and acute myeloid leukemia. The following case documents an unusual patient presenting with pancytopenia and acute myelofibrosis accompanied by precursor B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This very rare clinical presentation raises questions concerning the relationship between concurrent occurrence of acute myelofibrosis and acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An acute myeloid leukemia in which 20-30% of the bone marrow or peripheral blood cells are of megakaryocyte lineage. MYELOFIBROSIS or increased bone marrow RETICULIN is common.

A rare acute myeloid leukemia characterized by abnormal EOSINOPHILS in the bone marrow.

Enzyme that is a major constituent of kidney brush-border membranes and is also present to a lesser degree in the brain and other tissues. It preferentially catalyzes cleavage at the amino group of hydrophobic residues of the B-chain of insulin as well as opioid peptides and other biologically active peptides. The enzyme is inhibited primarily by EDTA, phosphoramidon, and thiorphan and is reactivated by zinc. Neprilysin is identical to common acute lymphoblastic leukemia antigen (CALLA Antigen), an important marker in the diagnosis of human acute lymphocytic leukemia. There is no relationship with CALLA PLANT.

An acute myeloid leukemia in which abnormal PROMYELOCYTES predominate. It is frequently associated with DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.

A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
