Nonspecific esterase may be positive in a minority of cases, usually in a focal or punctuate pattern of reactivity in a proportion of the blasts. Acid phosphatase is typically negative but may be present in the form of weak scattered granular positivity. Immunophenotypic Assessment In adult ALL, approximately 75% of cases are of B- and 25% of T-lineage. However, lineage assignment of ALL cannot be established by the morphologic evaluation alone. Immunophenotyping is essential in the work-up of patients with ALL.

Some translocations result in a creation of fusion genes, such as PICALM-MLLT10 t(10;11) (p13;q14) and MLL-ENL t(11;19) (q23;p13) [63]. Activating mutations in the NOTCH1 gene, important for T cell development, are detected in 50% of adult T-ALL patients and are associated with a shorter survival [64, 65]. 2 Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia – Clinical Features and Making the Diagnosis 19 In some cases translocations not detected by routine karyotyping can be identified by molecular genetic studies.
