PARP inhibition utilized in combination therapy with Olaparib-Temozolomide to achieve disease stabilization in a rare case of BRCA1-mutant, metastatic myxopapillary ependymoma.
MetadataShow full item record
Myxopapillary ependymoma (MPE) is a primary tumor of the central nervous system (CNS), characteristically an indolent malignancy involving the spinal conus medullaris, Filum terminale or cauda equina. We present a rare case of MPE, recurrent in the pelvic soft tissue with eventual pleural and intra-pulmonary metastasis. Refractory to repeated gross resection, adjuvant radiotherapy, platinum-based chemotherapy and temozolomide exploitation of mutant somatic BRCA1 status with the addition of a poly (ADP-ribose); polymerase inhibitor (PARPi) in a novel combination regimen with olaparib-temozolomide (OT) has achieved stable radiological disease after 10 cycles.
