Familial cerebral cavernous malformation (FCCM) is an autosomal dominant vascular disorder caused by heterozygous deleterious variants in KRIT1, CCM2 or PDCD10. In a previous study, we presented the clinical and molecular findings in 140 FCCM individuals. In the present work, we report supporting information on (a) applied diagnostic workflow; (b) clinical significance of molecular findings according to the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics/Association for Molecular Pathology recommendations; (c) standardization of molecular and clinical data according to the Human Phenotype Ontology; (d) preliminary genotype-phenotype correlations on a subgroup of patients by considering sex, age at diagnosis, neurological symptoms, and number and anatomical site(s) of vascular anomalies; (e) datasets submitted to the Leiden Open Variation Database. An overview of the changes of our diagnostic approach before and after the transition to next-generation sequencing is also reported. This work presents the full procedure that we apply for molecular testing, data interpretation and storing in public databases in FCCM.
