Abstract

This article reviews the laboratory methodologies used to evaluate acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in children and their role in establishing a diagnosis and prognosis of this disease. These methodologies are: morphology, flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular diagnostics. Additionally, immunophenotypic classifications of ALL and criteria for establishing a diagnosis of ALL independent of morphology are described.
