We report a rare case of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with a cytogenetically complex karyotype with coexistence of KMT2A/MLL Mixed Lineage Leukemia (11q23) rearrangement with 5q deletion and 7q deletion as unrelated clones along with evolution of a subclone with translocation between chromosomes 6 and 17. A novel MLL fusion partner region 12p13 was identified in a 52 year old woman who presented with pyrexia of unknown origin. Unraveling the complexity of genomic alterations occurring in AML patients will lead to better understanding of leukemic transformation and identification of subsets of patients that may respond differently to therapy.
