Cancer Genet Cytogenet. 1992 Oct 1;63(1):32-6. doi: 10.1016/0165-4608(92)90060-l.

Abstract

We report cytogenetic and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis findings in 7 patients with breast fibroadenomas (FA). Three patients were cytogenetically abnormal. One patient had a translocation t(3;5)(p22;q13), the second had trisomy 8, and the third two clones, 47, XX, +11 and 47,XX, +10.
