Abstract

API2-MALT1 fusion and aneuploidy are common chromosomal abnormalities in MALT lymphoma. In studying their incidence and relationship in primary pulmonary MALT lymphomas, a translocation involving MALT1 and IGH was also identified. In all, 28 primary pulmonary MALT lymphomas were studied by fluorescence in situ hybridization using an API2-MALT1 probe and multiple centromeric probes, as well as IGH-BCL2, IGH-MALT1, and MALT1 breakapart probes in selected cases. Seven (25%) had API2-MALT1 fusion; all seven lacked aneuploidy except for two with trisomy 3 in a small clone. Three (11%) had IGH-MALT1 fusion; two also showed trisomy 3 and 12. A total of 11 (39%) had aneuploidy only, with trisomy 3 and 18 being the most common. Ectopic nuclear bcl-10 expression, which has been previously associated with API2-MALT1, was seen by immunohistochemistry in 86% of API2-MALT1 fusion-positive cases, one IGH-MALT1 fusion-positive case, two aneuploidy-only cases, and two normal cases. In primary pulmonary MALT lymphomas, cytogenetic abnormalities are common (75%) and heterogeneous, encompassing API2-MALT1 and IGH-MALT1, which are mutually exclusive, as well as aneuploidy, which may be present in the latter but is rare in the former. Ectopic nuclear bcl-10 expression is associated with API2-MALT1 but may also be seen in IGH-MALT1 fusion-positive, aneuploidy-only, and normal cases.
