Malignant histiocytosis: a specific t(2;5)(p23;q35) translocation? Review of the literature.

Author information

  • 1Department of Hematology, Hôpital Jean Bernard, Poitiers, France.


In this paper, the investigators report a well documented case of malignant histiocytosis (MH) with a t(2;5)(p23;q35) translocation. A breakpoint in 5q35 appears to be specific, either for the disease or for a subclass of the disease. Additional cases of MH with cytogenetics are needed. This will help to determine if one class of MH or several subclasses can be defined by cytogenetic anomaly(ies).
