Myxoid/round cell liposarcoma

Description: 
Available tests Fluorescence in situ hybridisation analysis for: FUS t(16p11;); CHOP (DDIT3) t(12q13;); EWSR1 t(22q12;)
Clinical details: 
Myxoid/round cell liposarcoma is characterised by rearrangement of CHOP (DDIT3), most commonoy with FUS but also as a variant with EWSR1; detection of rearrangement of these genes, especially CHOP, can be useful in establishing the diagnosis of myxoid/round cell liposarcoma in histologically equivocal cases.
