Abstract: Cytogenetic and fluorescence in situ hybridization analysis of a thymoma revealed the presence of an abnormal clone with a karyotype 46,XY,r(6)(p2?q35?).ish r(6)(p2?q35?)(WCP6+,dJ476O18-,dJ62I11-, PAC59C23+,PAC57H24-),der(21)t(6;21)(p25;q22)(dJ62I11+,cosC9a1-). Histologically, the tumor was encapsulated and classified as thymoma type AB (World Health Organization classification) or mixed thymoma (Muller-Hermelink classification), composed of well-formed lobules with sharp demarcation of both the spindly type A and lymphocyte-rich type B components. This finding, together with literature data, strongly suggests that terminal deletion of the short arm of chromosome 6 is a recurrent aberration in thymoma.
