Associated Genetic Biomarkers

Overview

NCI Definition: A primary thymic neuroendocrine tumor, often associated with Cushing syndrome. Two morphologic subtypes are recognized: typical and atypical carcinoid tumors. Atypical carcinoid tumors have a more aggressive clinical course. [1]

Thymic carcinoid tumors most frequently harbor alterations in MEN1, SMARCA4, PLCG2, HRAS, and ANKRD11 [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Thymic Carcinoid Tumor

SMARCA4 Mutation, MEN1 Mutation, HRAS Mutation, HRAS Missense, and HRAS Codon 61 Missense are the most common alterations in thymic carcinoid tumor [2].
