ABSTRACT: A 21-year-old white male with relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) developed an invasive Zygomycosis infection 3 weeks after beginning re-induction chemotherapy. Because of the high risk of fatal recurrence of the fungal infection, neither long-term maintenance chemotherapy nor allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) was considered appropriate. Because his ALL blasts expressed CD34 but lacked CD133, he received a CD133 selected autologous graft following high-dose consolidation chemotherapy. The patient survives in remission 19 months after HSCT. Pediatr Blood Cancer 2007;48:349–353. © 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
