Osteosarcoma, the most common primary malignant tumor of the bone, is characterized by complex karyotypes with numerous structural and numerical alterations. Despite attempts to establish molecular prognostic markers at the time of diagnosis, the most accepted predictive factor remains the histologic evaluation of necrosis after neoadjuvant chemotherapy. The present approach was carried out to search for genome-wide recurrent loss of heterozygosity and copy number variations that could have prognostic and therapeutic impact for osteosarcoma patients.
