Inversions of chromosome 12 in human malignancies.


We present four cases with a malignant hematologic disorder and an inversion (peri- or paracentric) involving chromosome #12. Two cases of myelodysplastic syndrome showed an identical acquired pericentric inv(12)(p12q23). The pertinent literature on constitutional and acquired inversions of chromosome #12 has been revised.
