Chordoma of the Clivus and Acute Myeloid Leukemia: Is There a Connection?

Journal of Pediatric Hematology/oncology
Trisha LarkinBiljana Horn


Chordoma is a rare cancer in children and understanding the genesis of this tumor may contribute to treatment approaches. Evidence has proposed VDC/IE (vincristine, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide/ifosfamide, etoposide) as a treatment option for young patients with chordoma to avoid the long-term effects of radiation therapy. We present a case of acute myeloid leukemia developing during treatment of localized chordoma of the clivus in a 20-month-old male. We propose a genomic relationship that may have contributed to the development of clival chordoma and acute myeloid leukemia without a latency period and advocate for genomic sequencing in children with chordoma before the initiation of systemic therapies.

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia & RNA

Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a common hematological type of cancer. As the population ages, there has been a rise in the frequency of AML. RNA expression has been used to see if there are different genetic profiles that exist within AML and whether these may underpin the variations in survival rates. Here is the latest research on AML and RNA.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disease with approximately 20,000 cases per year in the United States. AML also accounts for 15-20% of all childhood acute leukemias, while it is responsible for more than half of the leukemic deaths in these patients. Here is the latest research on this disease.
