NCI Definition: Malignant neoplasms that either originate from the bone marrow (e.g. myeloid leukemias) or involve the bone marrow as secondary-metastatic tumors (e.g. metastatic carcinomas to the bone marrow). --2003 [1]

Malignant bone marrow neoplasms most frequently harbor alterations in ASXL1, ETV6, TET2, DNMT3A, and TP53 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Malignant Bone Marrow Neoplasm

ASXL1 Mutation, ETV6 Mutation, TET2 Mutation, ETV6 Frameshift, and ASXL1 Frameshift are the most common alterations in malignant bone marrow neoplasm [2].
