Cytogenetically-defined subgroups of acute myeloid leukaemia have distinct biologies, clinical features and outcomes. Evidence from therapy-related leukaemia suggests that chromosomal abnormalities are also markers of exposure. Our results suggest that the smoking-associated risk for acute myeloid leukaemia is restricted to the t(8;21)(q22;q22) subgroup. This supports the hypothesis that distinct cytogenetic subgroups of acute myeloid leukaemia have separate aetiologies.
