the alkaline phosphatase cytochemical stain is used to differentiate between:
a) chronic lymphoblastic leukemia and acute myelogenouse leukemia
b) Acute lymphoblastic leukemia and acute myelogenous leukemia
c) chronic myelogenous leukemia and severe bacterial infections
d) leukemoid reactions and sever bacterial infections

C) Chronic myelogenous leukemia and severe bacterial infections (which lead to a leukemoid reaction)

CML leads to decreased LAP scores, whereas leukemoid reactions result in scores from high-normal to increased. (Pregnancy also results in a high LAP score in the third trimester).
