Abstract

A cytogenetic study was performed on a short-term culture of a biopsy from a primary anaplastic carcinoma of the pancreas. The modal chromosome number was 60. Six numerical clonal anomalies involving chromosomes #2, #6, #7, #10, #15, and #16 were found, and marker chromosomes involving #1, #3, #5, #8, #11, #12, #13, #15, #16, #18, #20, #22, and X. Premature chromosome condensation (PCC) was observed with a high frequency. The results are discussed with reference to the scarce literature on chromosome changes in pancreatic cancer.
