We report the cytogenetic analysis of five cases of follicular thyroid adenoma. In two of them, we observed an identical t(2;3)(q12-13;p24-25) as a unique chromosome change. A third case showed a hyperdiploid karyotype with trisomies of chromosomes 7 and 12. Two cases had a normal diploid karyotype. These changes could define subgroups of follicular adenomas endowed with different malignant potential.
