Abstract

A translocation (6;11)(q26-27;q23) was detected in four male patients diagnosed with acute T-cell lymphoblastic leukemia and acute myelomonocytic and monocytic leukemias. This acquired reciprocal translocation appears to be associated with acute leukemias in young men who present clinically with localized infection, and a moderate leukocytosis. There was a poor response to antileukemic chemotherapy and a short overall survival. Aggressive treatment strategies should be considered in the treatment of these high-risk leukemias.
