Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is a relatively rare soft tissue tumor. The reactiveversusneoplastic pathogenesis of this tumor is unresolved. We found clonal chromosome aberrations involving 2p23 upon metaphase analysis of two IMTs. Fluorescence in situ hybridization with a probe flanking the ALK gene at 2p23 demonstrated rearrangement of the… CONTINUE READING
