Answer

Answer

Obtain a complete blood cell (CBC) count with examination of the peripheral smear to evaluate for peripheral blood involvement.

Evaluate the electrolytes, creatinine, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and uric acid (UA) levels, with careful attention to assessment of the risk for tumor lysis syndrome (most highly correlated with LDH).
