A 16-year-old Chinese girl presented with AML-M5a. A bone marrow examination showed that the myeloblasts which were overwhelming the marrow contained giant granules (pseudo-Chediak-Higashi anomaly). Her karyotype showed a rare translocation t(10; 11)(p13; q14). Molecular delineation of the translocation breakpoints was not possible. Nonetheless, this case further demonstrates the morphological and phenotypic heterogeneity of acute leukaemia with this translocation. In this girl it was associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation.
