Objective: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a disease related to the overproduction of immature lymphocytes. Fin diagnosis and classification of ALL, recognizing chromosome aberrations using conventional cytogenetic analysis (CCA) is essential. However, limited ability of CCA to capture cryptical chromosomal aberrations is a major drawback. The aim of this study was to investigate recurrent aberrations in patients with ALL with normal karyorype or unsuccessful karyoryping using the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) method.
