Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma (MIFS) is a rare, low-grade sarcoma characterized by distinctive, large, and bizarre Reed-Sternberg-like cells associated with an intense inflammatory infiltrate. The biology of MIFS is still poorly understood, and only two previous cases had been studied cytogenetically. In the present case, analysis of MIFS in the foot of a 53-year-old man revealed the chromosome translocation t(2;6)(q31;p21.3) as the only cytogenetic abnormality. This finding is distinct from the two cases previously reported. Additional studies are needed to verify whether any of these chromosome rearrangements are involved recurrently in MIFS.
