A patient with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and a translocation t(8;14) (q24;q11) is described.
Translocation t(8;14)(q24;q32) is commonly associated with B-cell leukemia; nevertheless, translocations affecting chromosome 14 at band q11 are associated with T-cell malignancies, since the locus 14q11 contains genes that encode for the alpha and delta chains of the T-cell receptor (TCR). This finding points to the idea that the association between 14q11 rearrangements and T-cell neoplasia is less than complete.
