Out of the adult group, 110 cases had acute leukemia including 67% AML, 330'{' ALL. In this group, 24 cases of CML" 19 cases of CLL, 4 cases of HCL and one case of plasma cell leukemia were classified. Out of 63 cases of leukemia in children, 79.4% diagnosed as ALL, 19% AML and 1.6% JCML.

Among subgroups of AML in adults, only M4 showed to have significant differences (p= 0.001) with the results from Wester countries.

According to FAB criteria, L 1 and L2 morphology were the most common types of ALL, respectively in children and adults. In adults 15.2% of chronic leukemia belonged to CML and 12% to CLL. The comparsion of present results with other studies in Western countries 'Showed the lower incidence of CML and CLL in Tehran. The difference was significant only in CLL.
