A 8-year old boy with acute lymphocytic leukemia who had shown resistance to repeated combination chemotherapies, was successfully grafted with bone marrow from his HLA- matched sister. He was in the third partial remission at the time of bone marrow transplantation. He was conditioned with cyclophosphamide 60 mg/kg/day on two consecutive days, followed by 800 rads total body irradiation. Marrow cells(2.4 X 10/kg) were infused intravenously 21 hours after total body irradiation. Successful engraftment has been demonstrated karyotypically(sex chromosome of peripheral leukocytes) on the post-BMT 14 th day. To prevent graft-versus-host disease, he recieved methotrexate and prednisone after BMT. But, grade I~ I acute graft-versus-host disease had been developed. It was well controlled with intravenous prednisone. Now, one year after BMT, he has been well in complete remission without evidence of leukemic relapse or interstitial pneumonitis.
