This book is an up-to-date compilation of chromosome findings on bone and soft tissue tumors. The book indicates the specificity of these changes and their relation to distinct pathologic entities. It also emphasizes the use of cytogenetic findings as part of the diagnostic approach for these tumors and as a guide for molecular biologists searching for the specific gene involved. Each chapter contains a comprehensive summary of the pathology of the tumors, particularly those in which cytogenetic findings have been published. This book will be valuable to pathologists, oncologists, and surgeons dealing with tumors of bone and soft tissue.
