    T-prolymphocytic leukaemia (T-PLL) is a rare, sporadic leukaemia similar to a mature T-cell leukaemia seen in some patients with Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T), a recessive multisystem disorder caused by mutations of the ATM gene at chromosome 11q23. ATM sequence mutations have been reported in 46%...
