Test ID HHTGP Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia Gene Panel, Varies


Advisory Information


Targeted testing for familial variants (also called site-specific or known mutation testing) is available for the genes on this panel. See:

-KVAR1 / Known Variant Analysis-1 Variant, Varies

-KVAR2 / Known Variant Analysis-2 Variants, Varies

-KVAR3 / Known Variant Analysis-3+ Variants, Varies

 

Call 800-533-1710 to confirm the appropriate test for targeted testing.



Shipping Instructions


Specimen preferred to arrive within 96 hours of collection.



Necessary Information


1. Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) Gene Testing Patient Information is required, see Special Instructions. Testing may proceed without the patient information however it aids in providing a more thorough interpretation.

Forms

1. New York Clients-Informed consent is required. Document on the request form or electronic order that a copy is on file. The following documents are available in Special Instructions:

-Informed Consent for Genetic Testing (T576)

-Informed Consent for Genetic Testing-Spanish (T826)

Useful For

Providing a comprehensive genetic evaluation for patients with a personal or family history suggestive of hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) or a related disorder

 

Second-tier testing for patients in whom previous targeted gene variant analyses for specific HHT genes were negative

 

Establishing a diagnosis of HHT and in some cases, allowing for appropriate management and surveillance for disease features based on the gene involved

 

Identifying variants within genes known to be associated with HHT and allowing for predictive testing of at-risk family members

Genetics Test Information

This test includes next-generation sequencing as well as supplemental Sanger sequencing to evaluate the genes listed on this panel.

 

Additionally, NGS is used to test for the presence of large deletions and duplications in a subset of genes.

Highlights

This test includes next-generation sequencing and supplemental Sanger sequencing to evaluate for variants in the ACVRL1, ENG, GDF2, RASA1, and SMAD4 genes.

 

Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling.
