Abstract

We report the case of a young girl whose acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) recurred as lymphoblastic lymphoma 6.6 years after diagnosis. Analysis of minimal residual disease (MRD) allowed tracking of the leukemic clone during the phases of therapy, confirming that relapse was a true re-emergence of the original clone.
