Abstract

Abstract We report the occurrence of an unbalanced whole-arm translocation of der(8;17)(q10;q10) in an 80-year-old female patient with Waldenström macroglobulinemia. To our knowledge, der(8;17)(q10;q10) has not been described in Waldenström macroglobulinemia. Although this cytogenetic abnormality has been reported in a number of solid tumors, a literature review suggests also a possible association with B-cell chronic lymphoproliferative disorders.
