t(15;17)(q21;q21) RARA-PML translocation in Acute Promyelocytic LeukaemiaTranslocationPML (15q22)RARA (17q21)

This is a highly selective list aiming to capture structural abnormalies which are frequesnt and/or significant in relation to diagnosis, prognosis, and/or characterising specific cancers.
