Clear cell chondrosarcoma is a rare cartilaginous tumor of low-grade malignancy that most often arises in the epiphysis of long bones in the third and fourth decades of life. Cytogenetic studies of clear cell chondrosarcoma are few. In this study, the cytogenetic findings of 4 cases of clear cell chondrosarcoma are presented. Clonal chromosomal abnormalities were detected in 3 cases. A tumor specific anomaly was not identified, however, extra copies of chromosome 20 and loss or rearrangements of 9p appear to be recurrent.
