A majority of the data on the prognostic significance of distinct chromosome changes and combinations of them in pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML) has been derived from adult studies, with not numerous published data in pediatric patients. One of points needed to be clarified is prognostic significance of complex karyotype (at least 3 unrelated(More)
Preliminary results of cytogenetic monitoring acute myeloid leukosis (AML) in children are presented. Repeated chromosomal analyses were accomplished in 23 patients that presented with cell clones showing various karyotype abnormalities prior to the onset of therapy. All the patients were treated following identical protocols. Complete hematological(More)
Prognostic significance of additional karyotype abnormalities was studied in 73 children with t(8,21) acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Additional chromosomal aberrations were documented in 61 cases (83.6%). The loss of sex chromosomes and/or deletion of the long arm of chromosome 9 (9q-) were predominant abnormalities, in agreement with the literature data.(More)
