Abstract

DS-ALL patients have a higher rate of relapse and treatment-related mortality. We describe a DS-ALL patient with late bone marrow relapse who was treated per British ALL R3 reinduction chemotherapy. The patient remained in remission for approximately two years after therapy was discontinued due to severe systemic infections.
