Abstract Share this page

Malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT) is a highly aggressive neoplasm that occasionally demonstrates phenotypic overlap with other soft tissue malignancies. Molecular genetic analysis of MRT frequently demonstrates deletion or mutation of the hSNF5/INI1 gene, with corresponding reduced expression at the protein level. INI1 immunohistochemistry was performed to determine the utility of this method in assessing loss of INI1 expression in rhabdoid tumors. Twenty-seven MRTs with molecular analysis (19 renal, 8 extra-renal) were evaluated. Seventeen additional MRT (10 renal, 7 extra-renal) without INI1 molecular analysis were also analyzed. Loss of INI1 expression was observed in the tumor cells in all 44 cases. To determine the specificity of this assay, a variety of 45 pediatric soft tissue tumors, some of which occasionally display rhabdoid differentiation, were investigated. These included Ewing's sarcoma, Wilms' tumor, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, clear cell sarcoma, congenital mesoblastic nephroma, synovial sarcoma, undifferentiated sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, and epithelioid sarcoma. Positive nuclear staining was found in all nonrhabdoid tumors examined. Of interest, synovial and epithelioid sarcomas exhibited variable and/or focal staining. INI1 antibody immunohistochemistry is useful in confirming the histologic diagnosis of renal or extra-renal rhabdoid tumor, especially for cases with indeterminate histologic features, equivocal immunophenotypic profiles, or uninformative molecular studies.
