Summary. Thirty patients with the 8;21 translocation and three with closely related variants have been studied. Ages ranged from 3 to 64 years (mean 28±3). Thirty‐one were entered into the MRC's 8th Acute Myeloid Leukaemia Trial. Twenty‐nine (88%) achieved complete remission. Marrow smears from most patients showed granulocytic maturation (M2, FAB classification) with characteristic abnormalities, but at least six showed predominantly myeloblastic (M1) morphology. The blast cells were markedly… Expand
