Abstract

The identification of recurrent chromosomal abnormalities in benign and malignant mesenchymal neoplasms has provided important pathogenetic insight as well as powerful diagnostic adjuncts. Nasal chondromesenchymal hamartoma (NCMH), an extremely rare benign tumor arising in the sinonasal tract of infants and children, has not been previously subjected to cytogenetic analysis. Histopathologically composed of mixed mesenchymal elements, NCMH exhibits a relatively wide differential diagnosis to include chondromyxoid fibroma, chondroblastoma, aneurysmal bone cyst, fibrous dysplasia, and osteochondromyxoma. An interesting association with pleuropulmonary blastoma has been reported in a small subset of NCMH patients. In the current study, cytogenetic analysis of a NCMH arising in an 11-year-old boy with a past medical history of pleuropulmonary blastoma revealed a novel 12;17 translocation, t(12;17)(q24.1;q21), as the sole anomaly.
