Genomic Landscape of Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumor-like Melanoma

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. This study provides the results of whole exome and transcriptome sequencing analysis of 8 samples from 6 patients with confirmed diagnosis of MPNST-like melanoma. This study demonstrates that MPNST-like melanoma shares oncogenic alterations common to both cutaneous melanoma and MPNST, and also suggests that MPNST-like melanoma harbors unique genomic and transcriptomic alterations.
