Usually p53 mutations accompany 17p deletions, are found in 12–25% of cases of CLL, and are strongly associated with advanced disease and Richter’s transformation (27). ATM is another gene that may function as a classical tumorsuppressor gene in CLL. ATM is located at 11q22-11q23, which is the region deleted in CLL. Inherited homozygous ATM mutations result in ataxia telangiectasia, which is itself associated with a greatly increased risk of lymphoid neoplasia and acquired homozygous ATM mutations are also known to occur in T-PLL.
