[Epidemiologic, clinical and cytohematologic characteristics of adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia in Tunisia].
Tunis Med. 2002 Apr; 80(4):199-202.TM

Abstract

Through a national retrospective study, the authors report the clinical and hematological characteristics of 124 acute lymphoblastic leukemia of the adult diagnosed during 5 years (1993-1997). The national prevalence is of 0.28/100.000 inhabitants/year. The sex-ratio is of 1.3. Sixty six per cent of patients were 16-35 years of age, and only 10% of them were more than 60 years of age. A tumoral syndrome was present at 71% of the cases with peripheral adenopathies in 55%, splenomegaly in 40%, hepatomegaly in 19% and a mediastinal tumor in 18% of the cases. The bone pain were rarely signaled (10%) and neuro-meningeal affection was found in only 3% of cases. There was no testicular lesions. The white blood cells count was less than 30.000/mm3 in 60% whereas an important hyperleucocytosis superior than 100.103/mm3 was observed in 20% of the cases. Anemia and thrombopenia were noted in 94% and 90% of the cases respectively. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia typing by cytological study of Bone marrow according to the Fransh-American-Britain criteria (FAB) had found 43%, 48% and 4% for type 1,2 and 3 respectively. In 5% of the cases the type of the acute lymphoblastic leukemia was not precised (diagnosis based on the Bone biopsy).
