Characteristics of MUTYH-Associated Polyposis (MAP): Development of colonic polyps (10-100) in the third decade or later.
Incidence: Less than 1 percent of colorectal cancer cases.
Inheritance: Autosomal recessive.
Penetrance: Greater than 99 percent in untreated individuals.
Cause: Pathogenic biallelic MUTYH gene mutations.
Clinical Sensitivity: 98 percent of MUTYH mutations.
Methodology: Bidirectional sequencing of the MUTYH coding regions and intron-exon boundaries.
Analytical Sensitivity and Specificity: 99 percent.
Limitations: Diagnostic errors can occur due to rare sequence variations. Regulatory region MUTYH mutations, deep intronic mutations, and large deletion/duplications will not be detected.
