    This study reports a 1-year-old boy with precursor B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) carrying t(16;21)(p11;q22). Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and direct sequence analysis showed TLS/FUS-ERG chimeric mRNA with a novel junctional pattern of exon 7 of TLS/FUS and exon 6 of ERG. He did not respond to ALL-oriented therapy. Complete remission (CR) was achieved by chemotherapy oriented for acute myeloid leukemia. Allogenic bone marrow transplantation was done and he has been in CR for 24 months. TLS/FUS-ERG chimeric mRNA was not detected after CR. This is the first report of an ALL patient with a TLS/FUS-ERG fusion transcript.
