Abstract

Little is known about MYC dysregulation in myeloid malignancies, and the authors were unable to find published studies that evaluated MYC protein expression in primary cases of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Herein, we describe the clinical, morphologic, immunophenotypic, cytogenetic, and molecular genetic findings in two MDS/AML cases that contained both MYC rearrangement and the JAK2 V617F mutation. We also demonstrate MYC protein expression by immunohistochemistry in both patients.
