Myeloid/lymphoid neoplasm with t(8;22)(p11.2;q11.2)/BCR-FGFR1 is an extremely rare diagnosis, with few reported cases to date. In contrast to other FGFR1-partner rearrangements that are associated with chronic eosinophilic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, and/or lymphoblastic lymphoma, patients with BCR-FGFR1 have a myeloproliferative disorder that closely resembles chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). The current report describes a rare case of a 61 year old man with an atypical CML phenotype associated with t(8;22)(p11.2;q11.2)/BCR-FGFR1. A literature review is presented to enhance the awareness of this rare diagnostic entity.
