keycompany  Additionally, AML is the only answer choice that has multiple blast forms (myeloblasts, promyelocytes, etc.). ALL is characterized by a single blast form (lymphoblasts). +27  
seagull  CML has blasts too but they tend to favor mature forms. +4  
kash1f  You see numerous blast forms == AML, which is characterized by >20% blasts +8  
keycompany  The answer choices are all of lymphoid origin except for AML and Hodgkin Disease. We know Hodgkin Disease is a lymphoma (not leukemia) and would present with lymphadenoapthy. So the answer must be AML #testtakingstrategies +12  
impostersyndromel1000  @atstillisafraud thanks for mentioning the merchlorethamine increasing risk for AML, i was trying to make a connection with the drugs but couldnt. Had to lean on the test taking skills just like key company +1  
sweetmed  Procarbazine is alkylating as well. +  
pg32  @keycompany how did you know the phrase "multiple blast forms" meant literally different types of blasts and not just many blast cells were seen? +3  
castlblack  this link says CLL has 'large lymphocytic variety' under the picture of the peripheral smear. I am not arguing against you, just researching here https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/199313-workup +  
jurrutia  @keycompany, how did you know it had to be of myeloid origin? +

pug_sheen  I think they are talking about the GHRH receptor on somatotrophs, which works through the cAMP pathway. +  
staygoodpupper  I don’t know how it relates to GH/IGF-1 in particular, but the question said there was a mutation in the alpha subunit of Gs, which activates adenylyl cyclase. +3  
kash1f  I agree the patient does have Acromegaly, but in the question it talked about how the patient had a mutation that prevented the GTPase activity of Gas. So Gs would be overactive --> excess adenylyl cyclase +28  
hyperfukus  ugh i was so excited too bc i thought i remembered jak stat epicfail +3
