Abstract:

Clinical metagenomic next-generation sequencing is an emerging approach for identifying pathogens of various infectious diseases. We present a case with a malignant tenosynovial giant cell tumor and chronic non-healing wound. Metagenomic next-generation sequencing of wound tissue biopsy identified Cytomegalovirus. Tumor recurrence over the previous non-healing wound was found three months later. The literature regarding CMV infection and tumorigenesis, the pathogenesis of malignant tenosynovial giant cell tumor, and the application of metagenomics in oncology are also reviewed herein.

Keywords:

Cytomegalovirus infections; Metagenomics; High-throughput nucleotide sequencing; Giant cell tumor of tendon sheath
