OBJECTIVES: Multiple genetic changes are observed in malignant tumors but are rare or absent in benign conditions. Aneuploidy is the most common feature of solid tumors including lung cancer and diagnosis of malignant tumors is possible through detection of aneuploidy. The aim of this study was to investigate chromosomal abnormalities in cells from non-small cell lung cancer patients obtained bronchoscopically and to evaluate the suitability of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).
