Definition / general
  • Very rare
  • Also called chronic myelomonocytic leukemia with eosinophilia associated with t(5;12)
  • PDGFRB is at 5q31-33
  • Bone marrow examination with tryptase stain, T cell clonal studies
  • Use of immunostains, cytogenetics and molecular studies to detect PDFGRB rearrangement and absence of BCR-ABL
  • Leukocytosis and eosinophilia
  • Variable monocytosis and neutrophilia
  • Anemia and thrombocytopenia
Molecular / cytogenetics description
  • t(5;12)(q31-q33;p12) or a variant translocation or ETV6-PDGFRB fusion gene
  • ETV6, previously known as TEL (Acta Haematol 2002;107:113)
