Background: There is no established effective treatment for patients with t(1;22)(p13;q13) acute megakaryoblastic leukemia (AMKL) and hepatic fibrosis.
Observation: Here we report the outcomes of 2 t(1;22)(p13;q13) AMKL patients with hepatic fibrosis. One patient died from liver failure despite the control of leukemia. The other patient was successfully treated with reduced-intensity chemotherapy and antifibrosis therapy with tretinoin and α-tocopheryl acetate, the hepatic fibrosis resolved and leukemia was in remission for 3 years.
Conclusions: Reduced-intensity chemotherapy plus antifibrosis therapy with tretinoin and α-tocopheryl acetate could be a treatment option for these patients with t(1;22)(p13;q13) AMKL and hepatic fibrosis.
