Recommendations for the typing of hematological malignancies in Latin America were published in 2005. Carrying out a national meeting to update them was deemed necessary. 95 professional experts on the subject were invited in order to analyze and contrast alternatives and reach a consensus. Consensus opinions were reached regarding indications, sample types and processing, antibodies, nomenclature and reporting of results for the diagnosis and monitoring of acute leukemias. This paper describes the recommendations and emphasizes on the need for national laboratories to adhere to them.

Keywords : Leukemia; Immunophenotype; Consensus.
