In this issue of Blood Cancer Discovery, Umeda and colleagues identify and comprehensively analyze a novel recurrent UBTF mutation (tandem duplications) in pediatric acute myeloid leukemia. Acute myeloid leukemia cases with UBTF tandem duplications display distinctive biologic features, including association with FLT3-ITD and WT1 mutations and high-risk disease, and appear to represent a new genetic subtype of acute myeloid leukemia.
