Abstract

In this study, cytogenetic analysis of two low-grade chondrosarcomas revealed relatively simple chromosomal complements with structural rearrangements involving chromosomes 1, 6, and 12 [46,XY,add(16)(q24)[3]/46,XY,t(1;20)(q21;q11),t(6;17)(q23;q23)[3]/46,XY,t(4;1 4)(q12;q24),t(5;6)(q12;p21) [2] and 45,XY,t(12;16)(q13;q24),- 14[17]/44,idem,add(4)(p16),-17,[2] respectively]. Previously published reports of chondrosarcoma have revealed structural abnormalities of chromosomes 1, 6, 9, 12, and 15 as common. Also, a correlation between the simplicity or complexity of the abnormalities seen and histologic grade has been suggested. The findings of the current study support these earlier observations.
