Abstract

Background

The current standard of care for relapsed and refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is combination chemotherapy.

Case presentation

We report a case of highly refractory ALL who was treated with blinatumomab. The ALL in this patient relapsed within a month after completion of hyperCVAD regimen and was refractory to high dose mitoxantrone/cytarabine and CLAG regimens.

Conclusion This highly refractory pre-B Ph− ALL was induced to complete remission after one course of single agent blinatumomab.
