Recurrent Genomic Alterations in Pediatric and Adult CNS Detected by Chromosomal Microarray (Literature Review)

Table 1 - Pediatric Central Nervous System Tumors. Table derived from Ligon et al., 2018 [ ] with permission from Cancer Genetics.

Low grade glioma, WHO grade I Pilocytic astrocytoma/pilomyxoid astrocytoma Some tumors show polysomy 7; other polysomies more common in adult PA Fusions: KIAA1549-BRAF fusion (via 3'BRAF duplication), other BRAF partners reported; NTRK fusions (rare); FGFR1 fusions (rare); Mutations: BRAF V600E (particularly extra-cerebellar tumors); FGFR1 (midline PA); NF1 (esp. germline), other MAPK pathway mutations Loss: NF1 in optic pathway PA Classic PA are cerebellar (most commonly associated with BRAF duplication); PA in patients with germline NF1 alterations often develop as optic gliomas;Surgical resection can be curative; PMA generally more aggressive than PA; BRAF fusions and BRAF mutations generally are mutually exclusive PMID:19016743; PMCID:2761618; PMID:18716556 PMID:25461780 PMID:25664944; PMID:26378811 PMCID:3429698; PMID:23817572; PMID:23583981 PMID:18974108; PMID:23278243; PMID:21274720
Angiocentric glioma Aberrations involving 6q24-q25 Fusions: MYB-QKI rearrangement/deletion (classic histology); Rearrangement: MYB alone (atypical histology); Amplification: MYB (atypical histology) Generally indolent tumors; surgical resection can be curative PMID:26829751; PMID:23633565; PMID:26778052 PMID:23583981
