The original version of this article [1] unfortunately contained mistakes.

The metaphase FISH studies using the Vysis IGH Dual Color, Break Apart Rearrangement Probe revealed 1 fusion signal on the normal chromosome 14 corresponding to an intact IGH@ locus, a red signal corresponding to the 3′ region of the IGH@ locus on the derivative chromosome 14, and a green signal corresponding to the 5′ region of the IGH@ locus on the derivative chromosome 8. This was not described correctly in the results section of the original manuscript.

Additionally, in the discussion, the reference for the case bearing the concomitant t(8;14)(q11.2;q32) and del(12)(p12p13) should be Byatt et al., not Harrison et al.

Finally, the email of the corresponding author (Carlos Tirado) should be ctirado@mednet.ucla.edu.
