Acute pancreatitis during L-asparaginase treatment in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Derwich K, Stencel D, Warzywoda M, Leda M.


L-asparaginase (L-ASPA) has been put to a wide application in many therapeutic protocols, above all in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). We presented three cases of acute pancreatitis in children with ALL induced by administration of L-ASPA preparations. Our observations revealed that ultrasound investigations are very useful in diagnosis and monitoring changes in the pancreas. The use of L-ASPA derivatives allows to decrease the toxic and allergic sequele resulting from the administration of the drug.
