The clinical, hematological, and cytogenetic data from two young adults with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) FAB type M1 is described. At diagnosis, cytogenetic investigation revealed the presence of the translocation t(6;9)(p23;q34). Bone marrow basophilia was not detected in either patient nor was there any evidence of preceding or underlying myelodysplasia. Both patients achieved complete remission (CR) and one patient remains in CR of over 5 years duration. It is suggested that the presence of basophilia may be associated with the myelodysplasia rather than the chromosome anomaly t(6;9).
