Abstract: The recent identification of rearrangements of neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase (NTRK) genes and the development of specific fusion protein inhibitors, such as larotrectinib and entrectinib, have revolutionized the diagnostic and clinical management of patients presenting with tumours with these alterations. Tumours that harbour NTRK fusions are found in both adults and children and are either rare tumours with common NTRK fusions that may be diagnostic, or more common tumours with rare NTRK fusions. To assess the currently available evidence, 3key Spanish medical societies (the Spanish Society of Medical Oncology (SEOM), the Spanish Society of Pathology (SEAP) and the Spanish Society of Paediatric Haematology and Oncology (SEHOP) have brought together a group of experts to develop a consensus document that includes guidelines on the diagnostic, clinical and therapeutic aspects of NTRK-fusion tumours. It also discusses the challenges related to the routine detection of these genetic alterations in a mostly public health care system.
