The Use of MEK Inhibitors in Neurofibromatosis Type 1-Associated Tumors and Management of Toxicities.

Oncologist 2020 Apr 9. Epub 2020 Apr 9.

NYU Langone Health, New York, New York, USA.

Early-phase clinical trials using oral inhibitors of MEK, the mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase, have demonstrated benefit for patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1)-associated tumors, particularly progressive low-grade gliomas and plexiform neurofibromas. Given this potential of MEK inhibition as an effective medical therapy, the use of targeted agents in the NF1 population is likely to increase substantially. For clinicians with limited experience prescribing MEK inhibitors, concern about managing these treatments may be a barrier to use. Read More

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2019 19;7:2050313X19838184. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Pôle d'Odontologie, Hôpital Maison Blanche, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Reims, Reims, France.

Schwannomas are benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors originating from the Schwann cells. Most schwannomas in the head and neck region are solitary; however, multiple schwannomas affecting one or more nerves suggest a possible association with neurofibromatosis type 2 and schwannomatosis. Plexiform schwannoma is a rare variant of conventional schwannoma that is characterized by intraneural multinodular growth. Read More

A cerebellopontine angle mouse model for the investigation of tumor biology, hearing, and neurological function in NF2-related vestibular schwannoma.

Nat Protoc 2019 02;14(2):541-555

Edwin L. Steele Laboratories, Department of Radiation Oncology, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Neurofibromatosis type II (NF2) is a disease that lacks effective therapies. NF2 is characterized by bilateral vestibular schwannomas (VSs) that cause progressive and debilitating hearing loss, leading to social isolation and increased rates of depression. A major limitation in NF2 basic and translational research is the lack of animal models that allow the full spectrum of research into the biology and molecular mechanisms of NF2 tumor progression, as well as the effects on neurological function.

Gingival Neurofibroma With Teardrop-Shaped Defects of the Interdental Alveolar Bone: An Unusual Oral Manifestation of Neurofibromatosis Type 1.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 May/Jun;30(3):e205-e207

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery II, Osaka University Graduate School of Dentistry, Osaka, Japan.

Gingival enlargement, although frequently encountered in clinical settings, is rarely associated with systemic diseases or syndromes. Among the diverse pathological conditions of neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1), minor manifestations in the orofacial region are occasionally overlooked. Herein, the authors present an unusual case of gingival neurofibroma in a patient with NF-1 associated with characteristic osseous defects in the alveolus in the long-term course of 17 years from the first examination.

Immunohistochemical differentiation between spindle cell lipoma and neurofibroma of oral cavity using CD34 and SOX10.

Indian J Pathol Microbiol 2018 Oct-Dec;61(4):561-563

Department of Dentistry, SP Medical College, Bikaner, Rajasthan, India.

Spindle cell lipoma (SCL), also called as pleomorphic adenoma, is a rare variant of lipoma histopathologically characterized by an admixture of mature fat cells with spindle cells and occasionally mast cells with myxoid connective tissue stroma and thick bends of birefringent collagen. Although buccal mucosa is the most common location for oral lipomas, for SCL, it is an exceedingly rare location. We report a case of an asymptomatic swelling of buccal mucosa that simulated the features of neurofibroma on histopathological examination, and the final diagnosis of SCL was made on the basis of immunohistochemical features.

Expansile radiolucent lesion of the Temporomandibular Joint-A diagnostic enigma.

J Oral Biol Craniofac Res 2018 Sep-Dec;8(3):203-205. Epub 2017 Jul 1.

Department of Oral Pathology, Government Dental College and Hospital, St. George Hospital Campus, Near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Area, Fort, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400001, India.

Radiolucent lesions of Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) represent a diagnostic challenge and a treatment conundrum. Biopsy of the lesions is technically difficult owing to their complex anatomy. The Differential Diagnosis (DD) includes a wide array of lesions including Simple Bone Cyst, Ameloblastoma, Central Giant Cell Granuloma, Hemangioma, Osteoblastoma, Osteochondroma, Chondroblastoma, Chondrosarcoma, Neurofibroma and metastatic malignant lesions though none has a specific predilection for TMJ.

Phenotypic and genotypic overlap between mosaic NF2 and schwannomatosis in patients with multiple non-intradermal schwannomas.

Hum Genet 2018 Jul 13;137(6-7):543-552. Epub 2018 Jul 13.

Department of Neurology, University Hospital Hamburg Eppendorf, 20246, Hamburg, Germany.

Schwannomatosis and neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) are both characterized by the development of multiple schwannomas but represent different genetic entities. Whereas NF2 is caused by mutations of the NF2 gene, schwannomatosis is associated with germline mutations of SMARCB1 or LZTR1. Here, we studied 15 sporadic patients with multiple non-intradermal schwannomas, but lacking vestibular schwannomas and ophthalmological abnormalities, who fulfilled the clinical diagnostic criteria for schwannomatosis.

Inferior survival for patients with malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors defined by aberrant TP53.

Mod Pathol 2018 11 26;31(11):1694-1707. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

Department of Molecular Oncology, Institute for Cancer Research, Oslo University Hospital, Oslo, Norway.

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor is a rare and aggressive disease with poor treatment response, mainly affecting adolescents and young adults. Few molecular biomarkers are used in the management of this cancer type, and although TP53 is one of few recurrently mutated genes in malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor, the mutation prevalence and the corresponding clinical value of the TP53 network remains unsettled. We present a multi-level molecular study focused on aberrations in the TP53 network in relation to patient outcome in a series of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors from 100 patients and 38 neurofibromas, including TP53 sequencing, high-resolution copy number analyses of TP53 and MDM2, and gene expression profiling.
