AIMS: The ALK p80 chimeric protein is thought to be up-regulated as a result of the t(2;5) as classically seen in anaplastic large cell lymphoma. However, rhabdomyosarcomas (in particular, the alveolar subtype) have also been noted to show expression of this protein. This study set out to examine ALK expression in a large number of rhabdomyosarcomas. METHODS AND RESULTS: Eighty-three cases of rhabdomyosarcomas and 16 cases of malignant mixed müllerian tumours with a rhabdomyosarcomatous comp...Expand abstract
