Two subsets of t-MN are frequently described: t-MN following treatment with irradiation or alkylating agents are characterized by a relatively long latency (5–10 years), multi-lineage dysplasia, and frequent unbalanced or complex chromosome abnormalities. In contrast, t-MN after exposure to topoisomerase II inhibitors or anthracyclines occur after a shorter latency (1–5 years) and frequently show balanced rearrangements of the KMT2A (MLL) gene. Core binding factor translocations (RUNX1-RUNX1T1 and CBFB-MYH11) are also observed occasionally, and associate with relatively favorable outcomes [6].

Patients with RUNX1-RUNX1T1 rearrangement commonly have AML with maturation (FAB M2), Auer rods, and show co-expression of CD19, and in some cases CD7 and CD56. AML with CBFB-MYH11 fusion typically shows myelomonocytic morphology with abnormal marrow eosinophils (FAB M4eo) and co-expression of CD2. 1 monoclonal antibody.
