Acute leukemia

Acute leukemia

Mohammed Al-matrafi


Leukemia

Leukemia

  • Malignancy of leucocytes precursors

  • Appearance of abnormal cells in BM, peripheral blood, infiltration in LN, Liver spleen etc.


Childhood leukemia

Childhood Leukemia

Types:

Based on clinical presentation

  • Acute leukemia 95%

  • Chronic leukemia 5%

    Based on type of predominant leukemic cells

  • Acute leukemia:

       Acute lymphoblastic leukemia- 85%

      Acute myeloid leukemia- 15%


Childhood leukemia1

Childhood leukemia

Prevalence:

  • Most common malignancy in children

  • 30% of all pediatric malignancies

  • Average incidence 4/100,000 children

  • Peak age:

    ALL : 4 years

    AML: Same from birth –10 years


Etiology

Etiology

Unknown:

Genetic predisposition

Viral infection

Cong. immune deficiency

Ionizing radiation

Certain toxic chemicals


Acute leukemia

At risk patients


Genetics

Genetics

  • At risk:

    Trisomy 21 {15 times}

    Fanconi aplastic anemia

    Ataxia telengectasia

    Siblings of patient with ALL {2-3 times}

    Identical twins{ concordance of ALL}


Acute leukemia

Clinical presentation of ALL


Clinical presentation of all

Clinical presentation ofALL

  • SYMPTOMS:

    Usually < 4 weeks history at diagnosis

    Fatigue/malaise

    Fever/infection

    Extremity, joint or bone pain

    Bleeding manifestations

    CNS symptoms (Increased ICP)

    Weight loss

    Others: DIC, Chloroma {AML}


Clinical presentation of all1

Clinical Presentation of ALL

  • SIGNS:

    Pallor

    Hepatomegaly

    Spleenomegaly

    Lymphadenopathy

    Petechie

    Bony tenderness


Acute leukemia

Diagnosis


Diagnosis

Diagnosis

  • Peripheral blood :

    CBC : Normal, increased, decreased

    > 100,000 bad prognosis

    Anemia

    Neutropenia

    Blast cells

    Thrombocytopenia


Normal blood film

Normal blood film


Acute leukemia

L1

L2

L3


Diagnosis1

:Diagnosis

  • Bone marrow (BM)

    Morphology:

    >25% blast cells in marrow

    (normal <5%)


Other investigations

Other investigations

  • Uric acid high

  • LDH high


Bone marrow aspirate

Bone marrow aspirate

  • Morphological classification:

  • Cytochemical analysis:

  • Immune phenotyping:

  • Cytogenetic:

  • Molecular studies:


Morphology

Morphology

  • FAB classification:

    { depending on size,cytoplasm,nucleus}

    L1

    L2

    L3

    L1: commonest and has good prognosis


Immune phenotype

Immune phenotype

  • T cell leukemia

  • B cell leukemia

  • Non T cell non B cell leukemia


Cytogenetic studies

Cytogenetic studies

  • Higher ploidy

    { >50 chromosomes}: good prognosis

  • Diploidy or hyperdiploidy:

    { 47-50 chromosomes} Intermediate prognosis

  • Haploid cell:

    worst prognosis


Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis

Non malignant conditions like:

  • Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis / other connective disorders

  • Infectious Mononucleosis

  • Aplastic Anemia

  • Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura {ITP}


Treatment of all

Treatment of ALL

BASED ON:

  • Lineage (B or T)

  • Cytogenetic abnormalities

  • Patient’s age and other risk factors

  • White blood cell count (WBC)


Supportive measures

Supportive measures

  • Hydration

  • Treatment of infection

  • Correction of electrolyte disturbances

  • Blood product transfusion

  • Psychological support

  • Treatment of tumor lysis syndrome


Treatment of all1

Treatment of ALL

REQUIRES:

  • Intensive systemic multi agent chemotherapy

  • Repetitive intrathecal chemotherapy

  • Cranial irradiation when necessary in older children

  • Bone marrow transplant in special circumstances

  • Treatment continued for  3 years


Treatment

Treatment

  • Induction phase: 4 weeks {3-4 drugs}

    vincristine, prednisilone, L-asparaginase etc

  • CNS prophylaxis:

    Intrathecal methotrexate

    Cranial irradiation

  • Consolidation phase:2-4 weeks

    {For prevention of relapse}

  • Maintenance phase:{2-5 years}


Sanctuaries areas

Sanctuaries areas

  • Relatively impermeable to the medications:

  • Sites of relapse:

    2 sites:

    CNS

    Testis


Prognostic factors contd

Prognostic factors {contd.}

  • Morphology, histochemistry, cytogenetic

    L1; good prognosis

  • Response to induction therapy

    Rapid- good prognosis

    Slow- poor prognosis

  • B cell leukemia: worst prognosis


Prognostic factors

Prognostic factors

  • Demographic

    Age: <2year,>10year poor prognosis

    Race: Black poor prognosis

    Sex: Male poor prognosis

  • Leukemic burden

    WBC: >50,000 poor prognosis

    Mediastinal LN: poor prognosis

    CNS involvement. at diagnosis: poor prognosis


Outcome

Outcome

  • Relapse sites:

    Bone marrow

    CNS

    Testis in males

  • Disease free for 5 years after diagnosis:

    overall 60-70%, in standard risk group 80%

  • Relapse: Allogenic bone marrow transplant


Bone marrow transplant

Bone marrow transplant

  • Very high risk cases

  • Following relapse


Bone marrow transplant blood stem cell transplant

Bone marrow transplantBlood stem cell transplant

  • Autologous

  • Allogeinic


Acute leukemia

In a blood stem cell transplant, the patient is first given a pre-transplant treatment of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy to destroy the patient's leukemia cells and immune system.

Blood stem cells are then put into the patient's blood to restore the patient's immune system and blood production.


Acute myelogenous leukemia

Acute myelogenous leukemia

  • FAB classification:

    M1,M2,M3,M4,M5,M6,M7

    M3 { promyelocytic} may present with DIC

  • Disease free survival with

    chemotherapy 30 %

    BMT 50-60 %
