Medical Definition of Acute monocytic leukaemia

1. The most common translocation in this disorder of poorly differentiated monocytic cells involves chromosome region 11q in a large percentage of cases. The translocation involves a cellular oncogene, c-ets which is mapped to the 11q23-24 region. The most common translocations reported are t(6;11), t(9;11), t(11;17) and t(11;19), of which t(9;11) (p21-22;q23) is by far the most frequently detected and implicated in acute myeloid leukaemia. The cells express CD14 surface antigen, which is diagnostic of monocytic cells. Acronym: AML Classification: FAB M5 (07 Apr 1998)
