Thyroid transcription factor 1 (TTF-1) is encoded by the NKX2-1 homeobox gene. Besides specifying thyroid and pulmonary organogenesis, it is also temporarily expressed during embryonic development of the ventral forebrain. We recently observed widespread immunoreactivity for TTF-1 in a case of subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA, WHO grade I)--a defining lesion of the tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). This prompted us to investigate additional SEGAs in this regard. We found tumor cells in all 7 specimens analyzed to be TTF-1 positive...
