A novel DEK-AFF2 fusion has been recently identified in four cases of basaloid to nonkeratinizing squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in the sinonasal tract and middle ear with high-grade morphology. The exceptional response to immune checkpoint inhibitor in the first reported case highlights the potential clinical importance of identifying tumors with DEK-AFF2 fusions. We herein reported the first series of seven cases of DEK-AFF2 fusion-associated sinonasal SCC with deceptively bland morphology, including four cases of low-grade papillary Schneiderian carcinoma, which is a recently described tumor type with unknown molecular underpinnings. The DEK gene rearrangement was confirmed by DEK break-apart fluorescence in situ hybridization and DEK-AFF2 fusion transcripts were detected by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. In contrast to the previously reported DEK-AFF2 fusion-positive high-grade carcinomas, these tumors had a monotonous and bland morphology and were all initially diagnosed as sinonasal papilloma (SP) of various types, with or without dysplasia or carcinoma in situ. The tumor was characterized by mixed exophytic and inverted patterns, broad papillary fronds, acantholytic change, cellular monotony, dense neutrophilic infiltrates, and peripheral palisading. All tumors were diffusely positive for p40 or p63 and negative for NUT and p16. Molecular drivers associated with SP, including EGFR and KRAS mutations and both high and low-risk human papillomavirus infection, were negative in all cases. Although there was no overt stromal invasion or desmoplastic reaction in the initial specimens, these tumors tended to progress locoregionally through a prolonged clinical course and occasionally develop lymph node metastases, high-grade transformation, or extensively local destruction eventually leading to death. These justify more aggressive clinical management. Therefore, we propose the new terminology "DEK-AFF2 fusion-associated papillary SCC of the sinonasal tract" to better describe this clinicopathologically and molecularly distinct entity.
