B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with hypereosinophilia
Phenotype / cell stem origin
CD19+, CD10+ ALL; eosinophils are not part of the leukemic cells and do not carry the t(5;14); they represent a reactive population (eosinophilia in association with ALL is usually reactive)
rarely described; 6M/1F; affects both children and adults, general features of ALL with hypereosinophilia are rarity, male predominance; and young age
marked eosinophilia; basophilia; IL3 is over-expressed
prognosis appears to be poor, a feature of ALLs with hypereosinophilia
sole anomaly or accompanied with various secondary anomalies: +X, (i(7q), del(12p), +19
Genes involved and Proteins
152 amino acids; growth factor; colony stimulating factor involved in the survival, proliferation and differentiation of multipotent hematopoietic cells
Result of the chromosomal anomaly
break in the promoter region of IL3 and in the Jh region of IgH
over-expression of IL3
To be noted
no recent article has been found; additional cases are needed to delineate this entity; we propose that a Study Group is established and that cases are collected; if you have a case, please, contact us
