    Abstract

    We describe two kindreds of Arab ancestry characterized by multiple cases of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Consanguinity and intermarriages were prevalent in the two families. Age, mode of presentation, characteristics of the leukemic cells, response to treatment and prognosis were remarkably similar among the patients. A short review of the literature on familial leukemia is given.
