The European LeukemiaNet classification combines a heterogeneous group of aberrations as high risk (HR) abnormalities. Our goal was to investigate the outcomes associated with distinct high-risk chromosomal abnormalities in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) after allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT). We performed a retrospective cohort analysis in patients with HR AML who received first, HLA-compatible allogeneic HSCT between 01/2005 and 12/2008. Data from 236 patients with a median age of 55 years were included. Since CK, -5/5q-, and abnl(17p) are overlapping categories, a hierarchical classification system based on the presence or absence of abnl(17p) and -5/5q- was developed. Patients with abnl(17p) had a 2-year EFS of 11% (95% CI, 0% to 25%), patients with -5/5q- but no abnl(17p) a 2-year EFS of 29% (95% CI, 14% to 44%), and patients with HR AML but neither of the two marker lesions a 2-year EFS of 49% (95% CI, 39% to 59%). Notably, complex and monosomal karyotypes lost their prognostic value when these marker lesions were excluded. In conclusion, hierarchical classification of HR karyotypes by two marker lesions, abnl(17p) and -5/5q-, is effective in prognostication of the outcome of allogeneic HSCT in AML.
