Abstract

Both cytogenetic analysis and flow cytometry (FCM) have prognostic efficacy in the analysis of transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of urinary bladder. To correlate results of the two methods, we studied a unique group of patients whose tumors had undergone prospective conventional cytogenetic analysis. Paraffin blocks of these tumors were processed for FCM, then analyzed for nuclear DNA content. Of the 34 tumors processed, 30 (88%) yielded interpretable DNA histograms. In 26 (87%) of these, there was good correlation between the two methods with respect to the presence or absence of a hyperdiploid cell line. Discrepancies may have resulted from sampling error or from interpretation of a tetraploid peak as a prominent G2M region. Retrospective FCM analysis of paraffinized TCC tissue correlates well with conventional, prospective cytogenetic analysis and is applicable to the majority of urinary bladder transitional cell carcinomas.
