Cytochemical stains can be useful in APL because all forms of APL have strong staining for myeloperoxidase and Sudan black reactions, thus aiding in differentiation from AML with monocytic differentiation, which will typically be negative for myeloperoxidase or only have weak staining in promonocytes.
