More than 90% of DFSP are characterized by reciprocal chromosomal translocation between chromosomes 17 and 22, t(17;22) or supernumerary ring chromosomes composed of interspersed sequences from bands 17(17q22) and 22(22q12).…”

In our study population, a 38-year-old woman had a DFSP arise within a chicken pox scar.…”
