Abstract

Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) with FIP1L1-PDGFRA fusion gene is a group of uncommon myeloid neoplasms. FIP1L1-PDGFRA positive AML is considered to have a good prognosis when using tyrosine kinase inhibitors in the course of treatment. Hereby we report a case of a 27-year-old male with FIP1L1-PDGFRA positive eosinophiliaassociated AML, resistant to imatinib, dasatinib as well as intensive chemotherapy followed by allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. The course of our patient's treatment is not consistent with the reports of most authors.
