Written2002-08Sarah Moore, Sanjeev Chunilal, Jacqueline Beerworth
(1)SA Cancer Cytogenetic Unit, Institute of Medical & veterinary Science, Adelaide, South Australia ; (2)Department of Haematology, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Adelaide, South Australia ; e-MAIL
Age and sex : 84 year(s) old female patient.
Previous History : no preleukemia
no previous malignant disease
no inborn condition of note
Organomegaly : no hepatomegaly ; no splenomegaly ; no enlarged lymph nodes ; no central nervous system involvement
WBC : 30.2 x 109/L ; Hb : 11.8 g/dL ; platelets : 189 x 109/L;
Bone marrow : 20
Cyto pathology classification
Cytology : (FAB) M2 with maturation; myeloid/stem cell
Immunophenotype : CD13+, CD33+, CD7+, CD34+, CD117+, HLA-DR+
Rearranged Ig Tcr : -
Pathology : Numerous mononuclear megakaryocytes. Active erythropoiesis. Active granulopoiesis, hypogranular neutrophils, giant band forms, donut nuclei, pseudo Pelger-Huet anomalies. Blasts have moderate nuclear: cytoplasmic ratio.
Precise diagnosis : de novo AML with multilineage dysplasia
Date of diagnosis: 03-2002
Treatment : Palliative treatment with oral etoposide
Complete remission : None
Treatment related death : -
Status : Dead 07-2002
Survival : 4 month(s)
Sample : Bone marrow ; culture time : 24 h ; banding : GTL
Results : 46,XX,t(4;12)(q11;p13)[15]/46,XX[5]
t(4;12)(q11;p13) GTL banded
This elderly woman did not receive induction chemotherapy. Her disease rapidly progressed from a smouldering leukaemia to a florid form. Findings are consistent with previous reports of t(4;12) with stem cell leukaemia in older patients, and with rarity of additional cytogenetic changes.
