Ossifying fibromyxoid tumor (OFMT) is a rare but morphologically distinctive soft-tissue tumor. The histologic origin of this tumor is not clearly known, but its various features suggest a schwannian, neuronal, or chondroid origin. We herein report a case of a typical OFMT that occurred in the shoulder of a 65-year-old man. The karyotype exhibited the following complex numeric and structural aberrations: 42 approximately 46,XY,-Y,add(1)(q42),add(6)(p21),t(10;18)(q26;q11),der(11)t(11;15)(q23;q15),add(12)(q13),ins(14;?)(q13;?),-15,+mar. Combined with several previously reported studies, these aberrations could not identify a common cytogenetic abnormality in OFMT.
