We describe a 70-year-old woman with acute myelogenous leukemia with t(8;21) in the first relapse who underwent nonmyeloablative transplantation with conditioning of fludarabine and low-dose total body irradiation (2Gy). Myelosuppression was very mild, and the patient developed transient grade I renal and hepatic toxicities. Complete chimerism was achieved on day 120. The level of the AML1/MTG8 fusion gene in bone marrow decreased to an undetectable level on day 56 and the patient is alive and in complete remission with a follow-up at day 450. This transplant regimen might be well tolerated even by the elderly patients and bring a durable remission.
