Cytogenetic studies were carried out on 103 unselected patients with acute mye-logenous leukemia (AML) at the Clinical Center of the National Institutes of Health. Seventy-three patients (70.9%) had a normal karyotype and 30 patients (29.1%) were aneuploid.

Four cases had a history of radiation exposure; three of these four patients had a normal… CONTINUE READING
