More comprehensive genetic diagnostics in children with cancer, enabled by modern sequencing techniques have shown that germline variants causing genetic cancer predisposition can be detected in an increasing proportion of patients. Many individuals carrying a predisposing germline variant exhibit distinct characteristics regarding family history, tumor type, age at manifestation and therapy toxicity. However, comprehensive phenotypic characterization and automated electronic documentation in searchable databases are essential to fully integrate genetic and clinical features. Therefore, we have developed a structured questionnaire, the Pediatric Cancer Predisposition Tool - PERCEPT to facilitate more accurate documentation of even subtle clinical features of patients with or with suspected germline cancer predisposition or suspected germline cancer predisposition. It could improve the comparability in multicentre studies and the automated recognition of phenotypic patterns in international searchable databases.
