The t(5;17)(q33;p13) rearrangement has been observed as sole cytogenetic abnormality in one case of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, a soft-tissue aneurysmal bone cyst, and a case of myeloid and lymphoid neoplasms (MLNs) with eosinophilia. Rare occurrence of lymphoid and mixed MLNs with abnormalities of PDGFRB has been reported in two cases. The t(5;17)(q33;p13) generates a fusion gene, located on the rearranged chromosome 5, comprised of the 5 portion of RABEP1 (encoding the coiled-coil domain) and the 3 portion of PDGFRB (encoding the intracellular kinase domain). Expression of the resulting fusion protein has been demonstrated to cause myeloproliferative disease in mice.
