Tetraploid or near-tetraploid karyotype has been described rarely in hematologic neoplasms. Herein we report two new cases of adult acute myeloblastic leukemia, M0 and M1 FAB subtypes that showed near-tetraploid clones that were studied with conventional cytogenetics and in situ hybridization (ISH). We compare our new cases with those previously reported.
