Blast cells from a majority of acute myelogenous leukaemia (AML) patients express c-kit mRNA. However, c-kit expression has not been observed in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and lymphoproliferative disease. We report here the detection of an abnormal sized c-kit mRNA in two Hong Hong Chinese patients with pre-B ALL and common ALL.
