Cytogenetic reports of plantar fibromatosis are rare, and to our knowledge no clonal reciprocal translocations have been reported in these lesions. Reciprocal chromosome translocations have been identified in a number of solid tumors and in some cases have helped identify genes involved in their pathogenesis. We report a case of plantar fibromatosis with the novel finding of a t(2;7)(p13;p13) balanced reciprocal translocation as the sole cytogenetic abnormality.
