Clinics and Pathology

Disease Acute monocytic leukemia (AML-M5)
Epidemiology Only one case reported in the literature till now, a 53-year-old female patient (Dai et al., 2007).
Prognosis The patient was still in remission 26 months after diagnosis.

Genes involved and Proteins

Note The gene partner in chromosome 1q12 is unknown.
Gene NameRUNX1 (runt-related transcription factor 1 (acute myeloid leukemia 1; aml1 oncogene))
Location 21q22.12
Dna / Rna Transcription from telomere to centromere.
Protein Contains the RUNT binding domain at 5' portion and the transactivation domain at 3' portion. Forms heterodimers; widely expressed; nuclear localization; a transcription factor and critical regulator of hematopoietic-cell development.

To be noted

Additional cases are needed to delineate the epidemiology of this rare entity:
