Use of Ommaya reservoirs in the treatment of meningeal relapse of acute lymphoblastic leukemia

, : Use of Ommaya reservoirs in the treatment of meningeal relapse of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Nouvelle Revue Francaise D'hematologie 26(5): 295-298

We report our experience in the treatment of meningeal relapses in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with intraventricular chemotherapy via an Ommaya reservoir. We treated 5 children in this way with some complications secondary to the use of the reservoir: methotrexate leukoencephalopathy, bacterial meningitis, reservoir malfunction. But patient comfort homogeneous drug distribution when injected via the Ommaya reservoir and the possibility of long term meningeal remission justify the discussion of the use of an Ommaya reservoir use in meningeal relapses in ALL.
