“Lysergic Acid Diethylamide and Acute Leukemia”. 
J. Am. Med. Wom. Assoc.. 1978;33(10):419-420.
Chromosomal breakages presumably caused by lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) have led to the speculation that there may be an increase in the incidence of leukemia among LSD users. A 23-year-old Caucasian man with a history of taking LSD over a period of 8 months was to reported. He was diagnosed to have acute myeloblastic leukemia 1 1/2 years later. This is the fourth acute leukemia patient with a history of LSD ingestion. This low incidence may reflect underreporting of LSD usage in leukemia or a lack of direct questionning of the LSD usage in leukemic patients or that there is a no cause-and-effect relationship between LSD and leukemia. Reports of clinical and cytogenetic studies of additional cases with this clinical setting may elucidate these problems.
