The aim of this study was to evaluate myeloid expression in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in children and adolescents who had been referred to the Oncology Department in a hospital in the State of Maranhão based on demographic, laboratory, and clinical data. Myeloid expression was evaluated in 65 patients under 18 years of age who were diagnosed with morphological, cytochemical, and immunophenotypes of ALL. Demographic, laboratory (hemogram), and clinical variables were obtained from medical records.
