Eight patients (7.6%) experienced only one ADR, eleven patients (10.5%) experienced two ADRs and eighty-six of them (82%) experienced more than two ADRs. there was a significant relationship between the number of ADRs and type of hematologie malignancy. In this regard, the patients with AML malignancy showed more number of ADRs than with ALL malignancy (p<0.05) The Gastro-intestinal system disorders were the most common affected system-organ by chemotherapy regimens (33.5%).
