We describe a case of a chronic myeloid leukemia patient displaying the chimeric BCR-ABL1 gene on 12p11. Chromosome analysis revealed complex chromosome aberration involving chromosomes 9, 12, and 22. Fluorescence in situ hybridization revealed an unusual signal pattern revealing the BCR-ABL1 fusion signal on chromosome 12, while no reciprocal ABL1-BCR fusion was detected on der(9) chromosome. The relocation of BCR-ABL1 fusion sequences to 12p11 site in our patient represents a rare type of variant translocation, as in almost all patients the chimeric BCR-ABL1 gene is located on der(22) chromosome. Our case illustrates the challenge of recognizing a complex pattern of cytogenetic aberrations that occur with variant t(9;22) and may add further information about clinical significance of unusual variant Ph rearrangements in CML patients receiving tyrosine kinase inhibitor treatment.
