Summary of "BCR-ABL1-like B-Lymphoblastic Leukemia/Lymphoma with FOXP1-ABL1 Rearrangement: Comprehensive Laboratory Identification Allowing Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor Use."

B-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma (B-ALL) is the most common type of childhood cancer; it also occurs in teenagers and adults, in whom the prognosis is generally less favorable. Therapeutic and molecular advances have substantially improved the treatment for subtypes of B-ALL, such that subclassification by cytogenetic and molecular alterations is critical for risk stratification and management. Novel rearrangements involving ABL1, JAK2, EPO, and other kinases have been identified that may respond to inhibition akin to BCR-ABL1. This diverse group of leukemias has been recognized as a provisional entity in the 2016 revision of the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of the Hematopoietic Neoplasms as B-lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma, BCR-ABL1-like (Ph-like B-ALL). Herein, we present cytogenetic and molecular analysis of a case of B-ALL in a 16-year-old Caucasian boy with t(3;9) FOXP1-ABL1 rearrangement and concurrent loss of IKZF1, CDKN2A, and RB1 gene loci, meeting WHO criteria for Ph-like ALL. This case highlights diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic considerations of this recently recognized entity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.

A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and adolescents and characterized by a high number of lymphoblasts and solid tumor lesions. Frequent sites involve LYMPH NODES, skin, and bones. It most commonly presents as leukemia.

A neoplasm characterized by abnormalities of the lymphoid cell precursors leading to excessive lymphoblasts in the marrow and other organs. It is the most common cancer in children and accounts for the vast majority of all childhood leukemias.

A genus in the family RETROVIRIDAE consisting of exogenous horizontally-transmitted viruses found in a few groups of mammals. Infections caused by these viruses include human B- or adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA, T-CELL, ACUTE, HTLV-I-ASSOCIATED), and bovine leukemia (ENZOOTIC BOVINE LEUKOSIS). The type species is LEUKEMIA VIRUS, BOVINE.

Translation products of a fusion gene derived from CHROMOSOMAL TRANSLOCATION of C-ABL GENES to the genetic locus of the breakpoint cluster region gene on chromosome 22. The p210(bcr-abl) fusion protein is found in patients with LEUKEMIA, MYELOGENOUS, CHRONIC, BCR-ABL POSITIVE. The p190(bcr-abl) fusion protein is found in patients with PRECURSOR CELL LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA-LYMPHOMA. The activation of human c-abl by chromosomal translocation is essentially the same as the activation of murine c-abl by viral translocation in ABELSON MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS.
