Primary B-cell lymphoma of the testis, breast and thyroid are rare and data concerning cytogenetic aberrations at these extranodal sites are scarce. We examined the presence of extranodal marginal zone lymphoma-associated translocations, t(11;18)(q21;q21), t(1;14)(p22;q32), t(14;18)(q32;q21), t(3;14)(p14.1;q32) and numerical aberrations of chromosomes 1, 3, 12 and 18 by fluorescence in situ hybridization in 6 extranodal marginal zone lymphomas and 24 diffuse large B-cell lymphomas with (n=9) or without (n=15) marginal zone lymphoma components, with primary localizations in the breast (n=15), testis (n=9) and thyroid (n=6). We found t(14;18)(q32;q21), with breakpoints in IGH and MALT1, in one testicular diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and in two diffuse large B-cell lymphomas of the breast. No other translocations, amplifications or deletions involving IGH, BCL-10, BCL-2, MALT1 and IAP2 were detected. Numerical aberrations occurred in 67% of the lymphomas, 67% of extranodal marginal zone lymphomas, 56% of diffuse large B-cell lymphomas with marginal zone lymphoma components and in 73% of 'de novo' diffuse large B-cell lymphomas. These included 78% of testis, 67% of thyroid and 60% of breast lymphomas, and included mainly trisomy 18 (n=16), trisomy 3 (n=8) and trisomy 1 (n=3). One testicular diffuse large B-cell lymphoma harbored both t(14;18)(q32;q21) and trisomy 3. Our results indicate that at least a few cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the testis and the breast belong to the spectrum of extranodal marginal zone lymphoma.Modern Pathology advance online publication, 28 September 2012; doi:10.1038/modpathol.2012.170.
