Testing strategy


The Pulmonary Fibrosis - Hermansky-Pudlak Panel should be ordered for individuals with a diagnosis or suspected diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis (including familial pulmonary fibrosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, Choreoathetosis, hypothyroidism, and neonatal respiratory distress (Brain-lung-thyroid syndrome), surfactant deficiency, familial pulmonary alveolar proteinosis, short telomere spectrum/ dyskeratosis congenital, and/or Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome. This panel will provide comprehensive coverage of the implicated genes and minimize the incidence of variants of unknown significance compared with the PulmoGene panel. We recommend careful consideration when deciding whether to order the full panel or the diease-specific sub-panels. For clinically complex cases where the diagnosis is not clear, the complete multi-disease panel may shorten the “testing odyssey.” However, it should be noted that large multi-disease panels typically come with an increased risk of an inconclusive result, as many genes have not yet been sufficiently interrogated for all included diseases. Disease-specific sub-panels may, therefore, be the better first line test for individuals with clear clinical diagnoses.
