Abstract: Introduction: Detection of mutations in patients with myeloid neoplasms (MNs) has shown great potential for diagnostic and prognostic purposes. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is currently implemented for the diagnostic profiling of the four major MN subgroups. Methods: First, we validated the targeted NGS approach using the TruSight Myeloid panel. Next, we screened 287 patients with a clinical suspicion of MN and 61 follow-up patients with documented MN. Results: Validation of the NGS workflow resulted in maximal precision, accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity for gene variants with an allele frequency of at least 5% and a minimal read depth of 300. In our diagnostic screen, we identified at least one somatic mutation in 89% of patients with proven MN. Of the 155 newly diagnosed MN cases, 126 (81%) showed at least one mutation, confirming clonality. Moreover, the co-occurrence of mutated genes in the different MN subentities facilitates their classification and justifies the diagnostic use of a pan-myeloid panel. Furthermore, several of these mutations provide additional prognostic information independently of traditional prognostic scoring systems. Conclusion: Pan-myeloid targeted NGS fits elegantly in the routine diagnostic approach of MNs allowing for an improved diagnosis, subclassification, and prognosis.
