• The development of acute myeloblastic leukemia following therapy for malignant disorders is being recognized with increasing frequency. Acute myeloblastic leukemia (erythroleukemic variant) developed in a patient with mycosis fungoides following three years of chemotherapy with a variety of antineoplastic drugs. The patient demonstrated a hypodiploid chromosomal abnormality with a missing C group chromosome.
