Acute lymphoblastic leukemias among children in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso : the results of treatment according to the protocol of the Franco-African Pediatric Oncology Group Introduction: acute lymphoblastic leukemia ALL is being diagnosed in an increasing number of children in our Department.
In developing countries, few studies focus on acute leukemias in children. This study aimed to investigate the clinical, biological, therapeutic and evolutionary features of ALL in children. Results: in total, nine children with ALL were hospitalized during the two year study period. The average age of patients was They were predominantly male. The average time of hospitalization was The main symptoms were alteration of general state and fever.
Nearly all the patients had tumor syndrome and bone marrow failure. Myelogram showed ALL type 1 in six of the nine patients. Six patients died. Conclusion: thanks to information campaigns, which will contribute to encourage early consultations, capacity-building measures for the medical staff allowing early diagnosis of ALL, the construction of a sufficiently equipped pediatric oncology center and a subsidy of anticancer drugs awarded by the state of Burkina Faso, the treatment of children with ALL would allow for better outcomes.
