Abstract

Heterozygous mutations in GATA2 underlie different syndromes, previously described as monocytopenia and mycobacterial avium complex infection (MonoMAC); dendritic cell, monocytes, B- and NK lymphocytes deficiency (DCML); lymphedema, deafness and myelodysplasia (Emberger syndrome) and familiar myelodysplastic syndrome/acute myeloid leukemia (MDS / AML). Onset and severity of clinical symptoms vary and preceding cytopenias are not always present. We describe a case of symptomatic DCML deficiency and rather discrete bone marrow findings due to GATA2 mutation. Exome sequencing revealed a somatic ASXL1 mutation and the patient underwent allogeneic stem cell transplantation successfully.
