Mutational landscape of renal cell carcinoma with venous tumor thrombus

Renal cell carcinoma with venous tumor thrombus opens the unique opportunity to investigate the clonal evolution of a tumor in two fundamentally different compartments i.e., within the confinement of an organ and inside a large blood vessel. We performed multiregion whole exome sequencing of a total of 37 samples from five consecutive patients (normal tissue, n=5; primary tumors, n=16; tumor thrombi, n=16) to >35-fold target coverage. Four patients had a clear cell RCC, one patient had a poorly differentiated type II papillary RCC (RCC-VTT-04). The latter patient had a friable thrombus, the others were of solid consistency.
