The germline mutations in the APC gene are in charge of the familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), a rare autosomal inherited disease... Both siblings received ileal J-pouch procedure... The eldest daughter (33 years old) did not display the disease phenotype... In this study, we identified in the proband, affected with FAP and desmoid tumour the novel mutation 1605_1606delTG... The proband passed on the mutation to one of her daughters and the son resulting in FAP phenotype... In the FAP, the sites of the mutation determine the presence or the absence of extracolonic manifestation of the disease, as desmoid tumours... The identified frameshift mutation is located in exon 12 at codon 535 in the 5′end of APC gene, a region of APC gene not usually associated with desmoid tumor... Indeed, the previous studies show that in patients affected with FAP and desmoid tumour the mutations of APC gene are localized predominantly in exon 15... In the proband, after three months of medical treatment with Toremifene, a selective oestrogen receptor modulator, the abdominal ultrasound showed no detectable hydronephrosis and the magnetic resonance imaging documented a downsizing of the mass... These data suggest that the mutations that are not in the 3′ end of the APC gene may be associated with a less severe phenotype... Both siblings affected with FAP and positive for APC gene mutation received colectomy nearly an year ago and at present are undergoing a clinical follow-up program... We propose that a longer follow-up could clarify the association between this novel mutation and the development of desmoid tumour... The identification of this novel mutation in APC gene and the outcome of the clinical follow-up of the subjects of this study are likely to be helpful in the FAP patient treatment and care strategies in the future.

Carrier frameshift variant c.1605_1606delTG. Electropherogram for the sense strand of exon 12 of APC gene. DNA sequence reveals a heterozygous TG nucleotide deletion (A), resulting in frameshift and subsequent chain termination. The wide type sequence is shown in (B).

Figure 2: Carrier frameshift variant c.1605_1606delTG. Electropherogram for the sense strand of exon 12 of APC gene. DNA sequence reveals a heterozygous TG nucleotide deletion (A), resulting in frameshift and subsequent chain termination. The wide type sequence is shown in (B).

Mentions: The analysis of the APC gene in the DNA sample from proband revealed the presence of the novel deletion, 1605_1606delTG. This frameshift mutation is located in exon 12 of APC gene and is characterized by a deletion of two nucleotides, generating a premature stop codon between codons 537 and 538 (Figure 2). The presence of the mutation was confirmed by resequencing a second DNA sample from the patient.
