Abstract

The prognostic significance of the additional abnormalities to the t15; 17 remains controversial. We report a case of promyelocytic leukemia APL in a ten-year-old boy. Classical and molecular cytogenetic FISH studies of a bone marrow sample obtained at diagnosis revealed the presence of trisomy of chromosome 11 as an additional chromosomal abnormality to the t15; 17. The presence of the translocation t15; 17, the cytogenetic marker of APL, is usually associated with good response to treatment with ATRA. In this case, although the patient had risk factors associated with good prognosis, he evolved and died quickly. So it seems that the presence of the trisomy 11 may be associated with disease progression and the poor outcome. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of t15; 17 associated with trisomy of chromosome 11 in a child with APL.
