Near-haploid and low hypodiploid acute lymphoblastic leukemia - two distinct subtypes but consistently poor prognosis

Safavi, Setareh LU and Paulsson, Kajsa LU (2017) In Blood 129(4). p.420-423
Abstract

Hypodiploidy <40 chromosomes is an uncommon genetic feature of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in both children and adults. It has long been clear by cytogenetic analyses, and recently confirmed by mutational profiling, that these cases may be further subdivided into two subtypes: near-haploid ALL with 24-30 chromosomes and low hypodiploid ALL with 31-39 chromosomes. Both groups are associated with a very poor prognosis and these patients are among those who could benefit most from novel treatments.
