A case of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (C.L.L.) was treated with repeated administration of tumor dose Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG). Following the first immunization series, the case has gone into complete remission and has remained so up to the time of this report, for about 9 years. The leukemic lymphocytes appeared to be "null” cell type.
