      Lung adenocarcinoma is an example of a tumor that shows a wide range of mutations, such as EGFR, KRAS, ALK, ROS, and RET. However, with the exception of EGFR and KRAS, most mutations in lung adenocarcinoma have been detected in advanced tumors.

      We have encountered one interesting case of multiple lung adenocarcinomas. The patient was a 68-year-old Japanese male in whom two tumors were detected in the left upper lobe and lobectomy was performed. One of which was diagnosed as lepidic adenocarcinoma and the other as minimally invasive adenocarcinoma (MIA). We considered that these two adenocarcinomas were synchronous and independent. Two years later, eight ground glass nodules were newly found in the left lower lobe. After chemotherapy, these tumors were also resected surgically, and all eight were found to show a lepidic pattern histologically. Moreover, two of the tumors were diagnosed as MIA. Therefore, it was very difficult to determine which of the tumors were multicentric and which were possibly metastatic from the previous adenocarcinoma.

      In order to clarify the genetic background of these tumors, we examined the resected materials using next-generation sequencing.

      We secured snap-frozen samples from one primary adenocarcinoma and two secondary adenocarcinomas. The DNAs were extracted and subjected to exome sequencing (Next-seq-500, Illumina). The mutations were validated by amplicon sequencing. Amplicon sequencing was also performed using DNAs extracted from FFPE blocks of the other tumors.

      From the exome sequences, 26, 365 and 308 mutations were detected from one primary tumor and two secondary tumors, respectively. Among these mutations, those of two genes, EGFR (L858R) and SLC17A9 (G78R), were detected as common mutations. This result was validated by amplicon sequencing of the same DNA. Amplicon analysis of the remaining 7 tumors revealed that all tumors had the same EGFR mutation, but that only 6 had the SLC17A9 mutation and one primary adenocarcinoma (MIA) lacked the mutation. These results indicated that the primary tumors were multicentric whereas the secondary tumors were metastatic from the primary lepidic adenocarcinoma.

      Our study of multiple early-stage adenocarcinomas and their metastases has revealed a common somatic mutation of SLC17A9 as well as EGFR mutation (L858R). SLC17A9 is a lysosomal ATP transporter that regulates cell viability. Although somatic mutation of SLC17A9 has not been reported previously in lung adenocarcinoma, SLC17A9 has been considered to have an oncogenic function. The present findings suggest that SLC17A9 gene alteration and its dysfunction may contribute to progression of lung adenocarcinoma.
