Test ID: MYHZ    
MUTYH Gene, Full Gene Analysis, Varies

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Confirmation of suspected clinical diagnosis of MUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP) in patients with adenomatous polyps or early-onset colorectal cancer


Identification of familial MUTYH mutations to allow for predictive or diagnostic testing in family members

Genetics Test Information Provides information that may help with selection of the correct genetic test or proper submission of the test request

This test includes next-generation sequencing to evaluate for mutations in the coding region of the MUTYH gene. Sanger sequencing may also be performed to confirm any detected variants.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.
