Abstract

Atypical chronic myelogenous leukemia (aCML) is a myelodysplastic/ myeloproliferative disorder that usually occurs in older adults. Here we report a pediatric patient with aCML and a t(5;12)(q33;p13) with a corresponding fusion gene ETV6-PDGFRB. Because the PDGFRB tyrosine kinase is one of the known targets of tyrosine kinase inhibitors, this patient achieved cytogenetic and molecular remission with treatment with imatinib mesylate (formerly STI571; now Gleevec in the United States and Glivec in Europe). This case illustrates one of many myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative disorders that can be treated with this particular tyrosine kinase inhibitor.
