Soft tissue lipomatous tumors are morphologically heterogeneous. Various morphologic features are associated with specific chromosomal patterns and clinical features such as age, sex, and tumor site, location, and size. Simple lipomas are known to be karyotypically heterogeneous, but this has not been correlated with clinicopathological features. In 165 cases of solitary soft tissue lipoma, short-term cultures were analyzed cytogenetically. The karyotypes were divided into the following groups… CONTINUE READING
