Hereditary Brain/CNS/PNS Cancer Panel
Test Information: The Hereditary Brain/CNS/PNS Cancer Panel uses next-generation sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis to simultaneously analyze selected genes associated with an increased risk for brain cancer. Approximately 5% of primary brain cancers have known hereditary factors. Specifically, the Li-Fraumeni syndrome, p53 defects, neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) and 2 (NF2), tuberous sclerosis, von Hippel-Lindau disease, Turcot's syndrome, and familial polyposis increase the risk of brain tumors. In general, the test is used when a patient's medical history and family history findings strongly suggest that there is an underlying genetic etiology of brain cancer.
Test Details
Test Code: 9175
Special Notes: The panel includes exon by exon sequencing, indels and gross copy number analyses of 17 genes that are associated with an increased risk of brain cancer.
Certain exons with no known gross deletion/duplication mutations may not be covered by deletion/duplication analysis.
