[Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A patient with chronic lymphocytic leukemia developed Ph1-positive chronic myelocytic leukemia after a 6-yr course of CLL. Chemotherapy for CLL consisted of chlorambucil and steroids, later vincristine and bleomycin; after resistance to these agents, cyclophosphamide, vincristine and prednisolone were applied. When CML was diagnosed, we found two morphologically distinct populations of malignant cells in the bone marrow; the Ph1-chromosome was identified, and immunological surface marker studies also demonstrated two distinct malignant cell populations.
