1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Chromosomal abnormalities, such as t(9;22)(q34;q11) (abl/bcr), t(12;21)(p13;q22) (tel/aml1), and t(11q23) (mll) are independent prognostic indicators in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

In brief: Yes

A karyotype is the description of the appearance of a cells chromosomes under the microscope.
If the question is whether there are abnormal karyotypes that are commonly seen in ALL, and whether these karyotypes are useful for the diagnosis, prognosis, and the choice of treatment; the answer is "YES" to all of the above.
