A 26-year-old man underwent colonoscopy to investigate weight loss and a lesion suspi- cious of colorectal cancer was detected. He had a family history of colorectal cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma. The biopsy result of the lesion showed a well-differentiated adeno- carcinoma of the sigmoid colon and he underwent curative anterior resection of the colon. A microsatellite instability (MSI) test was performed on the resected tumor tissue specimen and it was found to be MSI-high. A next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based hereditary tumor panel test was performed on his peripheral blood to detect the causative germline variant. Neither a pathogenic variant nor a variant of uncertain significance was found in the single nucleotide variant (SNV) and small indel variant analyses. However, a copy number variation (CNV) detection algorithm identified a variant compatible with the deletion of exon 7 to exon 19 of the
