Introduction: The incidence of all types of leukemia in the general population is approximately 61100,000 per year (I). Acute nonlymphocytic leukemia (ANLL) accounted for36% of all leukemias diagnosed in the U.S. between 1954 and 1964, and for 44% of leukemias detected between 1965 and 1969 (2). The etiology of ANLL is largely unknown, although there is some evidence that chromosome breakage and/or aneuploidy may be a factor. For example, patients with Downs, Fanconis, or Blooms syndromes are known to suffer a higher incidence of acute myelogenous leukemia than occurs in the general population (5). A viral etiology for ANLL. has also been proposed but is difficult to prove, and the causative role of viruses in this disease is impossible to assess at present (4).
