Although the morphologic test, EC stain, and FCI results clearly revealed 2 different immunophenotypes of the blast population at original diagnosis ([CD15.sup.+], [CD10.sup.-] early pre-B cell) and relapse ([CD19.sup.-] monoblast), the persistence of the t(4;11) abnormality and the presence of the immunoglobulin heavy chain gene rearrangement at relapse support the same cell of origin for both processes.
