Loss of distal 9p is a common genetic alteration in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. A vocal cord lesion incorporating a carcinoma‐in‐situ and a focus of invasive carcinoma revealed loss of the Y chromosome and a 9p22 rearrangement with loss of 9p22‐pter. Loss of 9p22‐pter appears to be a primary autosomal abnormality in this squamous cell carcinoma. © 1993 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
