Clinics and Pathology

Disease Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
Epidemiology Three patients to date, a 9-year-old girl with M4-AML, a 48-year-old male patient with M5-AML, and a 74-year-old female patient with therapy related AML(t-AML), M1 subtype, having occurred after treatment of a breast cancer (Haltrich et al., 2006; Charrin et al., 2002; Lindvall et al., 2001).
Prognosis No individual data.


Genes involved in this translocation are unknown.


Cytogenetics Morphological The M5-AML and the t-AML cases also had a del(5q), and numerical anomalies; the M5-AML case had a marker chromosome and the t-AML case a very complex karyotype.

To be noted

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