Chromosomal translocation t(1;13)(p36;q14) in a case of rhabdomyosarcoma

Genes Chromosomes Cancer. 1991 Nov;3(6):483-4. doi: 10.1002/gcc.2870030612.


Cytogenetic studies of a rhabdomyosarcoma of mixed embryonal and alveolar histology in an 11-month-old male revealed a single structural abnormality, t(1;13)(p36;q14). This abnormality may define a subset of patients with a variant of the t(2;13)(q35;q14) translocation frequently seen in alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma.
