  • "Probable" PTC occurred in 1.7% of patients who received ATRA during induction and/or maintenance therapy. In agreement with previous reports, the incidence of PTC in APL patients receiving ATRA was higher in the pediatric population. Here, we discuss the method for diagnosing PTC in the setting of ATRA therapy and management strategies.
