The gold standard for treatment of ALL in children is with a class of drugs known as the antracyclines. Long term outcomes following treatment of leukemia with antracylines can result in cardiac abnormalities including arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, hypertension and left ventricular failure.

OBJECTIVES, STARTING POINT AND MAIN PURPOSE: High-resolution electrocardiography (HRECG) is one of the latest cardiologic methods, which can be promising for early identification of patients at risk of anthracycline cardiotoxicity...
