Nine pleomorphic adenomas of the human parotid gland were investigated. Within this series the group of cases having clonal aberrations of chromosome Nr 8 predominates. The occurrence of cases with trisomy-8 and cases with structural rearrangements involving a breakpoint in 8q11-8q13 allows a further subdivision of this group of tumors. Our special interest(More)
Cytogenetic findings on seven mixed salivary gland tumors are reported herein. The involvement of chromosome #8 in clonal chromosome aberrations in five of the seven tumors was particularly noteworthy. Four tumors had translocations involving chromosome #8 and one or two other chromosomes (#3, #7, #9, #13). The fifth showed a deletion of parts of the long(More)
Cytogenetic findings on the recurrence of a pleomorphic adenoma of the parotid gland are herein reported. The tumor showed an abnormal chromosome #8, which was very similar to a marker chromosome recently described as the sole abnormality in an endometrial adenocarcinoma.
