(This code is effective for cases diagnosed 2010 and later. For cases diagnosed prior to 2010 see codes: 9728/3 [lymphomas] or 9836/3 [leukemia].) This leukemia is relatively common in children. The incidence decreases with age, so it is seldom seen in older children and rarely, if never, in adults. Presenting symptoms are similar to patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, NOS.
