Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common form of childhood malignancy. Detecting and characterizing recurrent translocations is critical for ALL diagnosis and treatment. IGH (immunoglobulin heavy chain) rearrangements are relatively common in lymphoproliferative disorders, including ALL. Here we report a 16-year-old boy who was diagnosed with B acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Chromosome analysis showed a t(14;17)(q32;q21) with an additional copy of the derivative chromosome 14. IGH rearrangement was confirmed by concurrent FISH analysis. Chromosomal microarray analysis (CMA) showed the breakpoint at the 5 prime end of the IGF2BP1 gene located at 17q21.32. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of ALL with a 14;17 translocation resulting in an IGH-IGF2BP1 fusion; however, previous studies have implicated a role for up-regulation of IGF2BP1 in ALL.
