Abstract

Lymphoid leukemias are malignant neoplasms of lymphocytes originating primarily in the bone marrow. Lymphoid leukemias include both acute lymphoblastic leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Both forms are considered uncommon and may mimic more common diseases, such as lymphoma or chronic ehrlichiosis. Therefore, lymphoid leukemias can sometimes be difficult to diagnose. Newer techniques, such as immunophenotyping and assessment of clonality by polymerase chain reaction testing, have been developed to aid in the diagnosis of lymphoid leukemia. Once lymphoid leukemia is diagnosed, management may require aggressive chemotherapy. This article reviews the cause, classification, diagnosis, and treatment of lymphoid leukemias.
