The lipoma preferred partner (LPP) gene is fused to the high mobility group protein gene HMGIC in lipomas and pulmonary chondroid hamartomas. In addition, a fusion of LPP to the mixed lineage leukemia (MLL) gene has been described in a case of acute myeloid leukemia. Herein, a novel LPP fusion transcript of LPP in a lipoma is described that points to the possible oncogenic potential of LPP.
