Monosomy 5 in acute megakaryoblastic leukemia. Report of two cases
Clinical Trials as Topic
Two cases of acute megakaryoblastic leukemia are reported. The diagnoses were confirmed by clinical, morphologic, and cytochemical analysis. Karyotypic analysis demonstrated monosomy 5 in both patients, providing further evidence that acute megakaryoblastic leukemia is a subset of the acute nonlymphocytic leukemias and may be etiologically related to the myelodysplastic syndromes.
