Epidemiology

Only two cases to date, a 10-month-old male infant with M4-AML, who entered remission, and a 60-year-old male patient with M1-AML who died 4 months after diagnosis. Both patients presented with marked eosinophilia (Bhambhani et al., 1986; Sanada et al., 1989).

Genes Involved and Proteins

Note
Genes involved in this structural anomaly are unknown, although it is likely that CBFb is involved in the disease.
