Multiple myeloma (MM) is a malignant plasma cell disorder that involves multiple genetic abnormalities. Chimeric transcription factors, created by gene fusion as a result of chromosomal translocations, have been implicated in the pathogenesis of the disease. Here, we report the conventional cytogenetic analysis of a MM patient that showed a complex set of novel chromosomal rearrangements, including t(13;16)(q14;q24) and t(1;15)(q10;q26). This is probably the result of fusion of previously known genes, and would contribute to prognostic significance of the disease.
