UNLABELLED Chromosomal abnormalities are detected in up to 13% of stillbirths and over 20% of those with developmental anomalies. These estimates may be low since up to 50% of samples fail to achieve a result due to microbial overgrowth or nonviability. Tissue for cytogenetics can be procured at bedside by the clinician or by the pathologist in the(More)
We report the second case of ETV6-ACSL6 associated myeloproliferative neoplasm that has received a full course of imatinib therapy. The patient was a 51-year-old previously healthy man who presented with three months of worsening dyspnea and was found to have a white count of 216,000/cmm, of which 84% were eosinophil lineage. Cytogenetic analysis revealed a(More)
