Abstract

Perineuriomas are rare nerve sheath tumors, divided into intraneural and extraneural (soft tissue) types. Intraneural perineuriomas frequently contain TRAF7 mutations, and rarely, chr22q12 deletions. While chr22q losses can occur in soft tissue perineuriomas, comprehensive high-resolution molecular profiling has not been reported in these tumors and TRAF7 status is unknown. We used whole-exome sequencing and OncoScan single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array to evaluate 14 soft tissue perineuriomas. Thirteen cases showed 2 or more chromosomal abnormalities, composed primarily of large deletions. Recurrent chr22q deletions, containing the NF2 locus (n=6) and the previously unreported finding of chr17q deletions, with the NF1 locus (n=4) were frequent events and were mutually exclusive in all but1 case. In addition, 5 cases had varying chr2 deletions; and 4 cases had chr6 deletions. A chr10 deletion (previously reported in the sclerosing variant of soft tissue perineurioma) was observed in one case and another case had chr7 chromothripsis as the sole chromosomal abnormality. No TRAF7 mutations or alterations were identified in any case and no other evaluated gene (MAF<0.0001) had recurrent, deleterious mutations in >2 cases. The molecular genetic profiles showed no association with patient sex, age, tumoral histology or anatomic site. OncoScan SNP array analysis was performed on 10 cases and showed high concordance with the whole exome data, validating the large-scale deletions, duplications, and chr7 chromothripsis findings. In soft tissue perineuriomas, recurrent 22q12 deletions (with NF2) and 17q11 deletions (with NF1) appear to be mutually exclusive events, and alterations in NF1 or NF2 likely contribute to perineurioma pathogenesis, similar to other nerve sheath tumors. Moreover, the lack of TRAF7 mutations in soft tissue perineuriomas indicates divergent pathogenetic mechanisms from those of intraneural perineuriomas. ©
