Rearrangements of MYC are associated with B-cell neoplasms and are found in both Burkitt lymphoma/leukemia and B-cell lymphoma, unclassifiable, with features intermediate between diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and Burkitt lymphoma. Translocation of the MYC 8q24 region may be to the Immunoglobulin heavy chain locus (14q32), either the kappa or lambda immunoglobulin light chain loci (2p12 and 22q11, respectively) as well as to non-immunoglobulin loci.
