Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Numerical and structural chromosome aberrations were found in cell plaque metaphases from 9 of 14 patients with Peyronie's disease. In two cases there was evidence of clonal evolution for some of the chromosomal aberrations observed. The Y chromosome was the most frequently involved in numerical changes. Four of 9 cases with abnormal karyotype showed more than one abnormal, cytogenetically unrelated clone. Our findings suggest the possibility of a multiclonal origin for this benign tumor, and confirm the presence of chromosome instability in this cell growth disorder.
