Abstract

The 8p11 myeloproliferative syndrome is an aggressive stem cell disorder characterized by eosinophilia, lymphadenopathy and rapid progression to acute leukemia, caused by FGFR1 fusion proteins resulting from translocations at chromosome band 8p11. We report a new case initially responsive to aggressive chemotherapy, who progressed to acute leukemia despite allogeneic stem cell transplantation.
