    Notes: Summary A 17-year-old woman was admitted for bone marrow transplantation with the diagnosis of atypical Philadelphia-negative chronic myelogenous leukemia (aCML), cytogenetically characterized by trisomy 8 as the sole chromosome aberration. A striking feature was a congenital opacity of the right cornea. Chromosomal analysis of skin fibroblasts were performed and revealed a mosaic for trisomy 8. Commonly, a distinct clinical picture leads to the diagnosis of trisomy 8 mosaicism syndrome (T8ms), but an extreme phenotypic variability has been observed. To our knowledge the development of an aCML in a patient with T8ms has not been reported. A review of the literature revealed that an association to other hematological disorders had been described in two cases. The question of whether our patient's aCML was a random event or not is discussed. The patient is now 24 months post transplant and shows no evidence of disease. Her Karnofsky score is 100%. We conclude that it might be worthwhile to look for an associated constitutional trisomy 8 mosaicism in all patients with trisomy 8 leukemia.
