Prospective evaluation of internal adenopathy in a cohort of 43 patients with hairy cell leukemia
Leukemia, Hairy Cell
Significant internal adenopathy in patients with HCL is more frequent than previously recognized. Adenopathy is rare at diagnosis and appears to be related to disease duration. As patients treated with 2-CdA have long disease-free survival durations, detection of significant adenopathy by CT scan may be important; however, routine CT scans are not recommended at the time of diagnosis.
