Chromosomal abnormalities have been shown to play a major role in disease evolution in several haematological malignancies. Fluorescence In Situ Hybridisation (FISH), using locus-specific probes, which are capable of defining numerical and structural chromosome changes, has now become a routine diagnostic test in the clinical laboratory and the technique has thus been shown to be useful in the management of cancer patients.
