CML, ponatinib, extramedullary localization
Ponatinib a third generation tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has been approved for all phases of disease in CML. In advanced phase, has been confirmed with a good efficacy in all type of resistance, including T315I kinase domain mutation. We here report activity of the drug in advanced phase with extramedullary localization.
