TERT promoter mutations have been associated with increased risk of recurrence in meningioma cohorts, thus a potential biomarker for aggressive phenotypes. A main purpose of refining tumour classification is better predictions on the patient level. We compiled data from previous published cohorts to investigate patient-level predictions of recurrence based on TERTp-mut status. Implementation of TERTp-mut into the WHO grading led to better patient prognostication by improved prediction of recurrence. Our results support implementation of TERTp-mut into diagnostics and classification of meningiomas.
