Abstract

Chondromyxoid fibroma is a rare benign bone tumor most commonly arising in the metaphysis of long bones in young adults. Histopathologically, chondromyxoid fibroma may be difficult to distinguish from other cartilaginous neoplasms. Recently, a pericentric inversion of chromosome 6 [inv(6)(p25q13)] has been proposed as a specific genetic marker for chondromyxoid fibroma. In this study, cytogenetic and spectral karyotypic analyses of 2 chondromyxoid fibroma cases showed clonal abnormalities of chromosome 6 but at a breakpoint on the long arm (q25) distal to that described in the pericentric inversion. These findings suggest that several distinct breakpoints on chromosome 6 are nonrandomly involved in chondromyxoid fibroma. (C) 2000 by W.B. Saunders Company.
