Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia-Associated Marfan Syndrome and Davidoff-Dyke-Masson Syndrome: A Case Report/Akut Myeloblastik Losemi Ile Marfan Sendromu Ve Davidoff-Dyke-Masson Sendromu Birlikteligi: Bir Olgu Sunumu (Case Study)
Introduction Davidoff-Dyke-Masson syndrome (DDMS) is characterized by variable degrees of unilateral loss of cerebral volume and compensatory changes of the calvaria [1-3]. Marfan syndrome (MS) is an autosomal dominantly inherited genetic disorder of the connective tissue, which affects many organ systems including the skeleton, lungs, eyes, heart and blood vessels. The basic defect has recently been identified as a mutation in the fibrillin gene on chromosome 15. The condition affects both men and women of any race and ethnic group . On the other hand, acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML) is a clonal malignant disease of hematopoietic tissue [5,6]. AML occurs at any age but is more common in adults, with increased frequency as age advances. It is slightly more common in males. The etiology of AML is unknown, even if a number of inherited conditions are known to carry an increased risk of AML. Although two cases of AML associated with MS have been reported [7,8], AML associated with DDMS has not been previously reported. To date, no association between MS or DDMS and AML could be shown. Herein, a 23-year-old male with AML associated with DDMS and MS is reported.
