Eosinofil akut lymfatisk leukæmi hos yngre mand hjemvendt fra rejse i troperne

3 Citationer (Scopus)


A 22-year-old man presented with severe back pain and 60% eosinophilia after returning from the tropics. An extensive investigation for parasitic diseases was negative. Over time, his haemoglobin level and thrombocyte count fell, and the spleen and several lymph nodes were enlarged. The patient was diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukaemia with eosinophilia by bone marrow microscopy and flow cytometry. Chromosome analysis detected clonal abnormalities including t(5;14)(q31;q32). He initially responded to chemotherapy, but due to residual disease, he now awaits allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.
