A complex translocation in acute promyelocytic leukemia.

PMID:  3855689     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The breakpoints of a complex three-way translocation involving chromosomes X, #15, and #17 were resolved in a case of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). It is now apparent that similar cases of variant chromosome translocations are found in both chronic granulocytic leukemia (CGL) and APL. The morphological and clinical findings in this case emphasize the variability found in some cases of APL.
