Allogeneic bone-marrow transplantation was attempted in a 12-year-old boy with acute lymphocytic leukæmia. Chronicmyelogenous-leukæmia leucocytes transfused during a period of granulocytopenia became engrafted and resulted in graft-versus-host disease. Allogeneic blood-products should not be transfused into patients with severe drug or irradiation induced immunosuppression without prior in-vitro X-irradiation.
