Inverted papilloma (IP) is a sinonasal tumor with a well-known potential for malignant transformation. The purpose of this study was to identify the genes and pathways associated with IP, with progression to carcinoma-in-situ and invasive carcinoma. To determine genes and molecular pathways that may indicate progression and correlate with histologic changes, we analyzed six IP without dysplasia, five IP with carcinoma-in-situ, and 13 squamous cell carcinoma ex-IP by targeted sequencing. The HTG EdgeSeq Oncology Biomarker Panel coupled with next-generation sequencing was used to evaluate 2560 transcripts associated with solid tumors. Progressive upregulation of 11 genes were observed (CALD1, COL1A1, COL3A1, COL4A2, COL5A2, FN1, ITGA5, LGALS1, MMP11, SERPINH1, SPARC) in the order of invasive carcinoma > carcinoma-in-situ > IP without dysplasia. When compared with IP without dysplasia, more genes are differentially expressed in invasive carcinoma than carcinoma-in-situ samples (341 downregulated/333 upregulated vs. 195 downregulated/156 upregulated). Gene set enrichment analysis determined three gene sets in common between the cohorts (epithelial mesenchymal transition, extracellular matrix organization, and coagulation).
