Review on i(X)(q10) in male patients.

Clinics and Pathology


Extremely rare i(X)(q10) occurs in male patients, only five cases have been reported in lymphoid malignancies, including acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) (Bacher et al, 2009), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (Itoyama et al, 2002, Gindina T., table 1, case #3) and follicular lymphoma (Dave t al, 1999; Donti et al., 1988).

Additional anomalies

Additional chromosome anomalies were observed in all five patients. Extra i(X)(q10) was present in 3 patients (Donti et al., 1988; Dave et al, 1999; Gindina et al, case #3). Associated in combination with other isochromosomes in 2 patients (Donti et al, 1988; Gindina, case #3). In all cases, i(X)(q10) is part of a complex karyotype. t(14;18)(q32;q21) was found in 2 cases: 1 FL case and 1 DLBCL (Dave et al, 1999; Itoyama et al, 2002).

Result of the Chromosomal Anomaly


The major consequence of this abnormality is loss of several genes on Xp and gain of several genes on Xq, that leads to genetic imbalance.
