Burkitt lymphoma (BL) is an aggressive mature B-cell neoplasm. The cytogenetic hallmark are MYC-involving translocations, most frequently as t(8;14)(q24;q32). Additional cytogenetic abnormalities are seen in the majority of cases. The most frequent additional aberration involves the long arm of chromosome 1, either as partial or complete trisomy 1q. A very rare additional aberration is a supernumerary isochromosome 1q, i(1)(q10), resulting in tetrasomy 1q. The biological significance of this… CONTINUE READING
