Mutations of isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 and 2 (IDH1/2) are genetic alterations in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The aim of our study was to investigate the frequency and prognostic effect of IDH1/2 mutations together followed by an individual analysis of each substitution in a Hungarian cohort consisting of 376 patients with AML. IDH1(mut) and IDH2(mut) were mutually exclusive, detected in 8.5% and 7.5% of cases, respectively. IDH1/2(mut) was associated with: older age (p = 0.001), higher average platelet count (p = 0.001), intermediate karyotype (p < 0.0001), NPM1(mut) (p = 0.022) and lower mRNA expression level of ABCG2 gene (p = 0.006). Overall survival (OS), remission and relapse rates were not different in IDH1(mut) or IDH2(mut) vs. IDH(neg). IDH1(mut) and IDH2(mut) were associated differently with NPM1(mut); co-occurrence was observed in 14.3% of IDH1 R132C vs. 70% of R132H carriers (p = 0.02) and in 47.4% of IDH2 R140Q vs. 0% of R172K carriers (p = 0.02). IDH1 R132H negatively influenced OS compared to IDH(neg) (p = 0.02) or R132C (p = 0.019). Particular amino acid changes affecting the same IDH1 codon influence the clinical characteristics and treatment outcome in AML.
