Abstract

Background: Retinoblastoma (Rb) is a rare intraocular malignant tumor in children with high overall survival. Predisposition to Rb is linked to RB1 germline mutations with high penetrance, but rare RB1 low-penetrance variants are also known. Rb survivors are at risk of second primary malignancies (SPMs), mostly osteosarcoma and soft-tissue sarcoma. Nevertheless, the risk of primary osteosarcoma developing without prior Rb has not been reported in RB1 germline mutation carriers. Methods: We report a patient in whom osteosarcoma developed at age 17 as a first primary malignancy within a family context of sarcoma. Results: Unexpectedly, genetic testing identified a low-penetrance germline mutation in RB1 [NM_000321.2: c.45_76dup; p.(Pro26Leufs*50)]. In eight additional similar cases from published and unpublished reports of families, first primary osteosarcomas and sarcomas mostly developed in RB1 low-penetrance mutation carriers without prior Rb. Conclusion: We propose that first primary sarcoma and osteosarcoma could be a novel clinical presentation of a RB1-related hereditary predisposition syndrome linked to RB1 low-penetrance germline mutations. In these families, careful screening of primary non-Rb cancer and SPMs is required by maintaining enhanced clinical vigilance. Implementing lifelong periodic whole-body MRI screening might be a complementary strategy for unaffected carrier relatives in these families.
