Primary cutaneous follicle center lymphoma (PCFCL) is an indolent variant of follicular lymphoma (FL) with limited information available on the genetic background of the disease. The genetic hallmark of nodal FL, the t(14;18) translocation, affecting the BCL2 gene, is rare in PCFCL. Loss of 1p36, the most common secondary chromosomal abnormality in nodal FL, has been recently reported in 16.7% of PCFCL cases. In order to further characterize PCFCL, 21 cases were analyzed using interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization with BCL2 break apart and 1p36/1q25 dual color probes. Sanger sequencing was used to investigate TNFRSF14 and EZH2 mutations and immunohistochemistry to assess BCL2, EZH2 protein expressions.
