Cytogenetic Analysis in Hematological Malignancies Cytogenetic Analysis in Hematological Malignancies Presentation Transcript

  • Cytogenetic Analysis in Hematological Malignancies Hwei-Fang Tien, National Taiwan University Hospital
  • Cytogenetics in Hematological Malignancies • Most patients with hematological malignancies have clonal chromosomal abnormalities. • Some recurrent chromosomal abnormalities are tumor- and even subtype-specific, so are good for diagnosis and classification. • The pattern of chromosomal aberrations may predict treatment response and clinical outcome and is good for risk stratification. • Genes located at the breakpoints of the recurrent abnormalities play an important role in the process of tumorigenesis and can be the target of treatment.
  • Purpose of Cytogenetic Study in Hematological malignancies 1. Diagnosis and classification 2. Risk stratification 3. Selection of proper treatment 4. Follow-up of the response
  • Recurrent chromosomal abnormalities in Hematological malignancies CML t(9;22) AML t(8;21), t(15;17), inv(16), t(9;11), inv(3), t(6;9), t(1;22), -5/5q-, -7/7q- ALL t(4;11), t(1;19), t(v;11q23), t(12;21) MDS -5/del(5q), del(20q); -7/del(7q), +8 Lymphoma DLBCL t(3q27) Burkitt t(8;14) and variant Follicular t(14;18) Mantle cell t(11;14) Marginal zone t(11;18), t(1;14), t(14;18)
  • Case Demonstration Diagnosis
  • BM smears in a patient with bleeding tendency NTUH, Gene Chromosome Cancer, 1995,12:161 23Y/O, male , PB plt, 3000/μL; Hb, 9.2 gm/dL; WBC, normal Plt count increased to 533x103/μL after steroid treatment, but dropped again 1 mo later. BM smears

  • Case Demonstration For Lymphoma Staging
  • BM study for staging in a patients with DLBCL Pathol exam. of the BM biopsy specimen: no lymphoma involvement BM smears
