Acute undifferentiated leukemia (AUL) is a very rare hematologic neoplasm that expresses no markers specific for either myeloid or lymphoid lineages. While commonly observed in several acute leukemias, KMT2A rearrangements in AUL have been rarely reported in the literature. We report the third case to our knowledge of AUL harboring a KMT2A rearrangement. Furthermore, the KMT2A/GIMAP8 gene fusion identified in this case represents a novel KMT2A rearrangement.
