Test ID PDGF PDGFB (22q13), Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans/Giant Cell Fibroblastoma, FISH, Tissue

Useful For

Confirming the diagnosis of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP)/giant cell fibroblastoma (GCF) and excluding other spindle neoplasms that closely simulate the DFSP histology, including dermatofibroma (benign fibrous histiocytoma), neurofibroma, spindle cell lipoma, and a variety of other benign and malignant spindle cell neoplasms

Testing Algorithm

This test does not include a pathology consultation. If a pathology consultation is requested, PATHC / Pathology Consultation should be ordered and the appropriate FISH test will be ordered and performed at an additional charge.

 

This test includes a charge for application of the first probe set (2 FISH probes) and professional interpretation of results.

 

Additional charges will be incurred for all reflex probes performed. Analysis charges will be incurred based on the number of cells analyzed per probe set. If no cells are available for analysis, no analysis charges will be incurred.

Method Name

Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH)
