BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The ETV6 gene undergoes rearrangements with tyrosine kinases in hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. ETV6/ABL1 chimeric proteins have been detected both in lymphoid and myeloid disorders. Our objective was to study two new cases of ETV6/ABL1-positive acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and to focus on bone marrow morphology and on molecular cytogenetics of eosinophilic cells. DESIGN AND METHODS Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) was performed in two AML cases… CONTINUE READING
