Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A patient with chronic myelocytic leukemia in whom a clinical and hematological remission occurred after a single course of busulfan is described. The remission lasted for a period of 13 years and during that lapse of time, she gave birth to a healthy child. Afterwards, acute myeloblastic leukemia was diagnosed. Following treatment with rubidomycin and arabinoside C another remission was achieved, lasting already for 18 months.
