Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare, slow-growing, low-grade dermal tumor. Cytogenetic and FISH studies have revealed that the chromosomal rearrangements characteristic of DFSP tumors involve both translocations and the formation of a supernumerary ring derived from chromosomes 17 and 22. The t(17;22) (q22;q13.1) translocation generates a gene fusion between COL1A1 and PDGFB, which serves as a diagnostic marker of DFSP. In the present study we performed array-CGH (aCGH) analysis on ten DFSP tumors. The COL1A1 region at 17q was gained in 71% (5/7) of the samples and the PDGFB region at 22q was gained in 43% (3/7) of the individual samples. In addition to the 17q and 22q gains, altogether 17 minimal common regions of gain and one region of loss were detected.
