SUMMARY

The prognosis of acute promyelocytic leukaemia has passed from nearly desperate to highly curative over the last 40 years due to better understanding of the biology of the disease, the introduction of anthracyclines, all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA), arsenic trioxide (ATO) and the implementation of better supportive care during the treatment. If this also holds true for older patients will be discussed in this review.

Adult T-cell leukaemia-lymphoma: Pathogeny and clinical recommendations

BJH - volume 10, issue 7, november 2019

SUMMARY

Human T-cell leukaemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) was the first human oncogenic virus discovered. It is endemic in some regions of the world but increasingly prevalent in our countries as globalisation is progressing. After several decades of asymptomatic carrying, approximately 2–5% of infected individuals will develop adult-T-cell leukaemia-lymphoma (ATL). Despite significant progress in the physiopathology and therapeutic interventions, the prognosis of this rare disease is dismal. An update of classification, clinical features, diagnosis and recent treatment recommendations is outlined in this review.
