We describe a case of Waldenström's macroglobulinemia with a complex karyotype including a 14q+ marker. Secondary changes affected chromosomes 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 17.

The cytogenetic significance of the changes and their prognostic value, as compared with those described in previous reports, are discussed.
