Chronic myelogenous leukemia with a complex Ph1 translocation in an XYY male
We encountered a 38-year-old Japanese male patient with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), whose bone marrow and peripheral blood cells during the chronic and blastic phases contained a complex Ph1 translocation and an extra Y chromosome [i.e., 47,XYY,t(9;22;13)(q34;q11;q14)]. A karyotypic analysis of PHA-stimulated lymphocytes showed the constitutional karyotype to be 47,XYY. Thus, it was considered that CML with a complex Ph1 translocation developed in an XYY male; such a case has not been reported, so far. A B-lymphocyte cell line with the complex Ph1 translocation was established by the procedure of Epstein-Barr virus transformation. The presence of the complex Ph1 translocation in the B-lymphocyte cell line suggests that some of the B lymphocytes in this patient originated from the CML clone.
