Other changes include deletion of 6q (9%) and deletion of 17p13 (10%). A. 13q14 Deletions Chromosomal abnormalities involving the long arm of chromosome 13 were initially reported in isolated cases of B-CLL more than 15 years ago. Today we know that homozygous or hemizygous loss at 13q14 occur in more than half of B-CLL, in approximately 50% of mantle cell lymphomas, and in 16% to 40% of multiple myeloma (59–64), suggesting that a tumor suppressor gene at 13q14 is involved in the pathogenesis of these clinically and pathologically diverse group of tumors.
