EGAD00001006999 Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST)-like melanoma is a rare malignancy with overlapping characteristics of both neural sarcoma and melanoma. The genomics of MPNST-like melanoma have not been previously described. In this study, we performed whole exome sequencing analysis in 8 samples from 6 patients diagnosed with MPNST-like melanoma. Our results demonstrate that, although MPNST-like melanoma shares oncogenic alterations common to both cutaneous melanoma and MPNST, it also presents unique genomic alterations not previously described in neither of the malignancies. unspecified 8
