These results suggest that polysomy of chromosome 7 or 9 is a common finding in MM but uncommon in RM. Therefore, in conjunction with cytomorphologic and clinical suspicion of MM, detection of numerical chromosomal aberrations of chromosome 7 using FISH with routine cytologic smears can be a valuable diagnostic adjunct.
