-increased serum acid phosphatase
what is the etiology of tay-sachs disease?
-deficiency oof hexaminosidase
-seen in mostly jews
what is hexaminosidase?
accumulation of sphingolipids in lymphocytes
this disease death will occur within a few a years, and is a major site of pathology is central nervous system
what is the etiology of a neiman-pick?
-aka Sea-blue histiocytes
-due to defiency in sphigomyelinase
(leads to accumulation of sphigomyelin in histocytes)
this the deficiency in enzymes that break down mucopolysaccharide
Hunter's & Hurler's
this cell is caused by EBV(Epstein Barr Virus)-infects the B-lymphocytes, affects all races mostly children and young adults, enter the body orally
What are the symptoms of infectious monocucleosis?
-enlarge lymph nodes
what is the etiology of Leukemoid reaction?
-neutrophilic response to infection
-accelerated release of neutrophil
-mimics early stage of leukemia
(hence leukemoid reaction)
this has dark blue-black granules seen in severe infection (toxic granulation)
explain the Leukomoid reaction vs. CML
this is the malignat disease of hematopoietic tissue
this is normal bone marrow elements replaced by neoplastic cells, bone marrow is always involved, and infiltates spleen, liver, lymph nodes
explain the acute vs. chronic
anemia--mild to severe--mild
this will become mild-severe when acute and mild when chronic
what are the laboratory features of acute leukemia?
: present and usually predominate blast
-normocytic, normochromic anemia if liver and spleen not affected
what is the purpose of FAB classification
to attain better discrimination in therapy and prognosis
what are the basis of FAB classification
-immunologic marker studies
explain the basis of FaB classification
-----------AML Blast vs ALL Blast
this is prominent AML blast usually >2
this indistinct ALL Blast usually 2 or less
this is present in 50-60% in AML Blast
this is never present in ALL Blast
this is the presence or absence of enzymes or lipids differentiate hematopoietic cells, and aids in diagnosis and classification of leukemia
cytochemical staining, Basis of Fab Classification
Leukemic cells are ___% primitive leukemic blast
What are the characteristics of M2-AML
-resembles M1 except smear shows maturation to or beyond promyeloctes
*M1 and M2 combined are most common type of AML
-auer rods are present
In M3-APL leukemic cells are promyelocytes that has what?
-kidney shaped or bilobed nucleus
-auer rods common & in multiple
-negative chemical test
in M3-APL coagulation abnormalities include what?
-High incidence of
-prolonged PT, PTT
- elevated FDP
-decreased Factors I and V
Leukemic cells are called what?
M4-AMML are characterized by both what?
monocytic and granulocytic differentiation
this leukemia is positive for periodic acid-Schiff
What is the size of L2-ALL?
-larger than L1
What does the nucleus on a L2-ALL look like?
-irregular in shape
-clefting & indentation common
-heterogenous chromatin pattern
-one or more nucleoli
What does the cytoplasm look like on L2-ALL?
-variable, often moderately abundant
-variable cytoplasmic vacuolization
B-cell ALL is also called what?
Burkitt's leukemia or lymphoma
this is asymmetrical enlargement of lymph nodes
B-cell ALL accounts for __-__ % of ALL cases
Name the types of chronic Leukemia
-chronic lymphocytic leukemia
-chronic myelogenous leukemia
-chronic myeloid Leukemia
-chronic myelocytic leukemia
-chronic granulocytic leukemia
this has no specific etiologic agent, most common type of leukemia in adults, and twice more common in men
this is 90-95% of cases associated w/ Philadelphia chromosome(conjoing of chromosome 9 and 22, designatedt(9;22)
name the symptoms of CML
