Samenvatting

In schwannomatosis, germline SMARCB1 or LZTR1 mutations predispose to the development of multiple benign schwannomas. Besides these, other tumors may occur in schwannomatosis patients. We present a 45-year-old male patient who developed multiple schwannomas and in addition a malignant type 1 papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC1). We identified a duplication of exon 7 of SMARCB1 on chromosome 22 in the constitutional DNA of the patient (c.796-2246_986+5250dup7686), resulting in the generation of a premature stop codon in the second exon 7 copy (p.Glu330*). The mutant SMARCB1 allele proved to be retained in three schwannomas and in the pRCC1 of the patient. Loss of heterozygosity analysis demonstrated partial loss of the wild-type SMARCB1 allele containing chromosome 22, suggesting loss of that chromosome in only a subset of tumor cells, in all four tumors. Immunohistochemical staining with a SMARCB1 antibody revealed a mosaic SMARCB1 expression pattern in the three benign schwannomas, but absence of expression in the malignant tumor cells of the pRCC1. To our knowledge, this difference in SMARCB1 protein expression has not been reported before. We conclude that a germline SMARCB1 mutation may predispose to the development of pRCC1, thereby further widening the spectrum of tumors that can develop in the context of schwannomatosis.
