Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report on the cytogenetic findings in six cases of acute promyelocytic leukemia, studied in two different cytogenetic laboratories in Germany. A t(15;17) was detected in three cases. This finding reveals that the t(15;17) in acute nonlymphocytic leukemia type FAB M3 also exists in Germany as a nonrandom anomaly and indicates that it occurs with high frequency in this country.
