Abstract

We report a case of B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) with trisomy 12 detected by FISH using chromosome 12 alpha-satellite Probe (Oncor , USA) in uncultured interphase cells. Chromosome studies did not produce an analyzable metaphase by standard short term culture and revealed only normal female karyotype by B cell mitogen (phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate) stimulated 96 hr culture. The patient, a 59-year-old female, did not have hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and any other symptoms. The peripheral blood of the patient showed marked lymphocytosis (WBC : 28,300/microL, Lymphocyte: 80%) and the diagnosis by immunophenotyping was B cell CLL:CD5, CDl9, CD2O, SmIg, HLA-DR positive.
