  • Inversion of chromosome 16 is a common feature of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) M4, while t(16;21), although also associated with AML, appears to be a separate entity. We present a patient with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) who transformed to AML-M1. The karyotype was normal at diagnosis; at 15 months, hematological evidence of transformation was present, and repeat cytogenetics showed a novel rearrangement of one chromosome 16. Two breaks had occurred; one in the short arm at 16p11, with… CONTINUE READING
