Abstract

Measurement of cellular DNA content by flow cytometry demonstrated presence of two distinct aneuploid neoplasms in a patient who developed acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) 4 mo after diagnosis of diffuse histiocytic lymphoma (DHL). A lymph node aspirate contained peroxidase-negative, 'null', hyperdiploid (2.6C) DHL cells, while the bone marrow (BM) contained 84% primitive peroxidase-positive tetraploid AML cells (4.0C). Minor populations of hyperdiploid DHL and normal diploid cells could be detected by flow-cytometry in the BM, and all three populations were also seen in the peripheral blood.
