Clinics and Pathology

Phenotype stem cell origin

Myeloid leukaemias (Paietta et al., 1988; Scheurlen et al., 1999), if we exclude a case of lymphoplasmacytoid lymphoma (Offit el al., 1995). The translocation is found in M1-AML and M2-AML, with erythroid hyperplasia in the bone marrow and the presence of binucleated and trinucleated red cells in at least 3 of 4 cases (Paietta et al., 1988).


Four cases available, 2 male and 2 female patients, aged 26, 61, 63, and 63.


The clinical outcome is poor, with 2 cases not entering into remission and dead within 2 months after diagnosis, and a third patient with partial remission, relapse after 2 months, and death. The fourth patients outcome is unknown.
