Abstract Background: Thyrotrophinoma (TSHoma) is rare and knowledge on the genomic landscape of this tumour type is very limited. Aim: To perform whole-exome sequencing (WES) in a population of TSHomas to identify recurrent somatic genetic events Method: WES was performed on paired tumour and germline DNA of 7 patients with TSHomas. Three tissue samples were formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded and 4 fresh frozen tumour samples. Fresh blood samples were also collected from each patient. The average of mean depth of coverage amongst all samples was 129X, and 97% of target bases were covered ≥20X. Results:Four (57%) of the seven patients ..
