Genetic aspects of a 28 year-old female patient with typical morphological and clinical features of acute promyelocytic leukemia is presented. Pml/rara fusion transcript and a complex translocation involving chromosomes 5, 15 and 17 were detected by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technique which was applied as in adjunct to conventional cytogenetics. The patient deceased soon in spite of the immediate ATRA and cytostatic therapy.

Keywords: FISH, PML/RARA, Acute promyelocytic leukemia.
