Description

Muscle-invasive urothelial carcinomas are heterogeneous neoplasms for which the clonal relationship with low-grade urothelial dysplasia and carcinomas in situ remains unknown, and both monoclonal and field change models have been proposed. Low-grade dysplasia (18) and carcinoma in situ (12) associated with muscle-invasive urothelial carcinoma were microdissected and topographically analyzed (intraepithelial and invasive superficial and deep to muscularis mucosa) for methylation pattern of androgen receptor alleles, TP53, RB1, WT1, and NF1 microsatellite analysis to assess clonal identity; MLH1 and MSH2 sequencing/immunostaining. Appropriate controls were run. Carcinoma in situ (100%) and invasive urothelial carcinoma (100%) revealed monoclonal patterns, whereas low-grade dysplasia was preferentially polyclonal (80%). Carcinoma in situ showed aneuploid DNA content and more abnormal microsatellites than the corresponding invasive compartments, opposite to low-grade dysplasia. Absent MLH1 protein expression with no gene mutations were identified in carcinoma in situ and nodular-trabecular urothelial carcinoma with high microsatellite abnormalities. Somatic mismatch repair protein down-regulation and the accumulation of tumor suppressor gene microsatellite abnormalities contribute to a molecular evolution for monoclonal carcinoma in situ divergent from coexistent muscle-invasive urothelial carcinoma. Low-grade dysplasia is however unlikely connected with this molecular progression.
