The human JAK2 gene is mainly targeted by two types of genetic lesions that play roles in the pathogenesis of hematologic malignancies: intragenic mutations and chromosomal translocations. Chromosomal translocations of JAK2 are typically associated with myeloid or lymphoid malignancies with an aggressive course and poor outcome. Here we report a t(9;22)(p24;q11.2) translocation, in a MDS patient and review results associated with BCR-JAK2 fusion reported in the literature.
