Abstract

The clinical and laboratory features of four Israeli patients with adult-T-cell lymphoma-leukemia (ATL) are presented. In three of them evidence for human T-cell lymphotropic leukemia virus (HTLV-I) infection was obtained. Interestingly, all of the patients immigrated to Israel from the same regions in Iran. Except for lack of skin involvement, the clinical course was typical for ATL as described worldwide. This is the first report of ATL in an Iranian cohort. This observation suggests that Iranian patients with ATL-like illness should be studied for the presence of HTLV-I infection.
