Dock1 studied mitotic leukoblasts and erythroblasts and reviewed an extensive but uncertain literature. Tannhauser2 described mitotic leukoblasts in the peripheral blood of a patient with acute leukemia. Bowcock and Bishop3 reported a case of acute leukemia in which the peripheral blood frequently contained a type of mitotic
