Arber DA, Orazi A, Hasserjian R, et al. The 2016 revision to the World Health Organization classification of myeloid neoplasms and acute leukemia. Blood. 2016;127(20):2391-2405.

In the article beginning on page 2391 in the 19 May 2016 issue, there are errors in the text and in Tables 1 and 10.

In Table 1 (page 2392), the entry “Blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasm” was omitted. The corrected table is shown below.

Table 1

WHO classification of myeloid neoplasms and acute leukemia

On page 2393, in line 5 of the first paragraph in the right column, “t(8;9)(p22;q24.1);PCM1-JAK2” should read, “t(8;9)(p22;p24.1);PCM1-JAK2.”

In Table 10 (page 2397), column 2, in the information for PCM1-JAK2, “Often presents with T-LBL or B-ALL” should read “Rarely presents with T-LBL or B-ALL.” In column 3, in the information for PDGFRB, “t(5;12)(q31∼33;p12)” should read “t(5;12)(q32;p13.2).” In column 3, in the information for FGFR1, “Translocations of 8p11” should read “Translocations of 8p11.2.” The corrected table is shown below.

The errors have been corrected in the online version, which now differs from the print version.
