FAP TERMINOLOGY Attenuated FAP (aFAP)= FAP with less than 100 adenomas in an adult. There is a tendency to rectal sparing. Gardner sydrome = FAP or aFAP + extracolonic manifestations such as osteomas, skin cysts, extra teeth (odontogenic cysts), desmoid tumors, and congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigmented epithelium (CHRPE). Scenario: 18 yo with 1000 adeno. polyps and 4 generation family history of the same with osteomas, but does not have an APC mutation. Does he still have FAP? Answer: Yes! A gene mutation is not need for the diagnosis. For many reasons, not all patients have a detectable APC or MUTYH mutation (could have polymerase proofreading associated polyposis POLE, POLD1). Patients with aFAP have a 50% chance or less of having a detectable

CASE FROM THE CLINIC 43 year old man presented to the ED with abdominal pain. CT showed abnormal right colon and a mass was found in the right colon on colonoscopy. No polyps were seen. The patient underwent right colon resection. Pathology was reported adenocarcinoma with lymphocytic tumor infiltration. The patient’s mother had a hysterectomy in her 50s for bleeding. Otherwise she has no history of cancer. Father, and a bother (45) and sister (41) are alive and well. Which test is the most appropriate? A. Sequencing and testing for large deletions of APC. B. Tumor testing for microsatellite instability. (Senstive for LS) Clues for LS
WHAT IS MICRO SATELLITE INSTABILITY!? What is a micro satellite? Tips of chromosomes were termed “satellites” and later determined to be repetitive DNA. Subsequently short areas of repetitive DNA found through out the genome , these were termed “micro satellites.” (Micro satellite term replaced by short tandem repeat ,STR). Example: Big A tract 26 (BAT 26) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA How are they unstable? “Instability” refers to the change of micro satillete length in tumors. Usually lengthening. Big A tract 26 (BAT 26) > 29 in the tumor tissue AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA How do they become unstable in LS? The genes that repair micro satellite errors are nonfunctional in LS tumor tissue. These are the DNA mismatch repair, Lynch syndrome, genes – MSH2>, MLH1> MSH6> PMS2> EPCAM. (Also known as the MMR genes. ) Micro satellites length varies greatly in the population. CODIS uses 13 micro satilletes to develop DNA profiles for law enforcement.
Q: WHY IS MICRO SATELLITE INSTABILITY IMPORTANT? A: ALMOST ALL LYNCH SYNDROME COLON AND ENDOMETRIAL CAS DEMONSTRATE MICRO SATELLITE INSTABILITY. So the presence of micro satellite instability is used as a sensitive but not specific screen for Lynch syndrome.

SUMMARY For familial polyposis, FAP is a clinical dx. Many patient will not have a APC or MUTYH mutation. Testing for new described genes not yet available (eg polymerase proofreading associated polyposis PPAP). Consider chemoprevention with Lovaza (EPA fish oil). Fundic gland polyps dysplasia not clinically significant. Lower endoscopy fu for most FAP patients is q 6 months. For Lynch syndrome, The emerging standard of care is programatic micro satellite instability testing on all or a large subset of colon caners.
IRON AND B12 DEFICIENCY COMMON IN FAP AND LS PATIENTS. About 1/3 of patients will have hypoferritinemia or hypovitaminosis B12. All patients have ferritin and vitamin B12 measured annually.
THYROID, ADRENAL AND DESMOID TUMOR Thyroid About 3% lifetime risk for papillary thyroid cancer. Mostly female [89% female (96 F: 11 M)] Mostly young [mean age dx 29.2 (+/− 10.3) years.] Seth Septer and others. Hereditary Cancer in Clin Practice 2013;11:13. 24093640.
BENEFIT AND RISK OF AMPULLARY BX What is the reason for the biopsy? To prevent ampullary cancer by detecting premalignant precursors. What is the benefit? Normal ampulla: Information yield low in normal appearing ampulla, 75% of patients have histologic ampullary adenoma . Abnormal ampulla: Unlikely to progress. 1 of 69 patients with untreated histologically proven adenoma progressed to CA. Interval for that patient was 39 months. What is the risk? Pancreatitis. (St Mark’s halted routine ampullary bx in 1992.) CONSIDER: Enlarged ampulla >10 mm refer to ERCP for evaluation for ampullary bx and or ampullary bx. (Assumption cancer risk associated with size).
