PMID:  6939479     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A case of acute myeloid leukemia supervening upon a long-standing stable chronic lymphatic leukemia (CLL) diagnosed ten years earlier, is described. Thirty-three cases of acute leukemia terminating CLL were reported. All but three were treated prior to the emergence of the acute leukemia. The question of whether acute leukemia and other malignancies are more frequent in CLL is still controversial. The literature is reviewed.
