Monosomy for chromosome 9, as well as loss of heterozygosity for markers on this chromosome, has been detected in a high percentage of transitional cell carcinomas (TCC) of the bladder. We report a case of a TCC of the bladder with an interstitial del(9)(q11q21.2) that could be indicative of the presence of a putative tumor-suppressor gene related to bladder tumor progression. To elucidate the role of chromosome 9 in bladder tumors, it would be interesting to study a possible loss of heterozygosity in this chromosome region. © 1993.
