Abstract

Cytogenetic analysis of bone marrow cells from a patient with anemia, marked leukocytosis with eosinophilia, and thrombocytopenia showed monosomy 7 in all metaphases examined. The patient has refractory anemia (RA) according to FAB classification. Because of the hypereosinophilia of the patient, PCR technique was performed and no bcr-abl mRNA, specific for chronic myelogenous leukemia, was detected. Monosomy 7 has not been previously described in cases with hypereosinophilia. We assume, according to previous reports, that multiple genetic lesions can be involved in the pathogenesis of hypereosinophilia in this patient.
