Hematol Rep. 2013 Dec 23;5(4):e14. doi: 10.4081/hr.2013.e14. eCollection 2013.


Large granular lymphocytic (LGL) leukemia is a lymphoproliferative disease characterized by the clonal expansion of cytotoxic T or natural killer cells. We report on a patient diagnosed with T-cell LGL leukemia two years after the achievement of hematologic remission for acute myeloblastic leukemia.

Keywords: acute myeloblastic leukemia; large granular lymphocytic leukemia.
