Since Sadler's1 original description of leukemia in a patient with a "round cell sarcoma" there have been many reports of cases of malignant lymphoma terminating in leukemia. The dominant cell type of these leukemias has been a variety of mononuclears such as large lymphocytes or stem cells,2-7 small lymphocytes,5, 6, 8-12 "lymphosarcoma cells" or "leukosarcoma cells,"2, 13-18 unspecified types of mononuclears19-23 and monocytes.9 To our knowledge, however, no case of myelogenous leukemia has ever been reported in any patient with a malignant lymphoma.
