Synopsis: 
In this article, we evaluated the prognostic value of FLT3-ITD and CCAAT-enhancer-binding protein α (CEBPA) mutations in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. We did not detect any relationship between FLT3-ITD and CEBPA mutations as prognostic factors. However, FLT3-ITD mutation may affect the response to chemotherapy.

ABSTRACT

 

Background: Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is the most common malignancy in childhood. Although some prognostic factors have been defined to date, the estimation of prognosis is currently not perfect. Previous studies had shown an association of FLT3 with poor prognosis and CCAAT-enhancer-binding protein α (CEBPA) mutation with the development of acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). Here, we aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of FLT3-ITD and CEBPA mutations in ALL.
