Clinical significance:
Chromosome abnormalities are observed in up to 90% of acute lymphoblastic leukemia cases.  Abnormalities of both chromosome structure and chromosome number are observed. Hyperdiploidy in children with trisomies of chromosomes 4, 10 and 17 is associated with a good prognosis when structural anomalies are absent. The t(12;21) translocation also has a good prognosis and is a subtle abnormality best detected by FISH.  Abnormalities of 11q23 and the t(9;22) translocation are associated with a poor prognosis.
