Historically, acute leukemias that do not fit neatly into the broad categories of "acute myeloid leukemia" or "acute lymphoblastic leukemia" have caused considerable confusion and frustration for clinicians and pathologists. These misfit cases include bilineage and biphenotypic leukemias (collectively termed "mixed phenotype acute leukemias" in the 2008 World Health Organization Classification of Tumors of Hematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues), as well as acute undifferentiated leukemias and other miscellaneous atypical cases. In this review, the author discusses the definitions, history, clinical behavior, and current treatment approaches to acute leukemias of Sambiguous lineage.
