Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) has become a standard method for identifying copy number mutations in diagnostic and research settings. The occurrence of false-positive deletion findings and the underlying causes are well recognized, whereas false-positive duplication/amplification findings have not been appreciated so far. We here present three pertinent cases which were only identified on extended, nonstandard secondary analyses. We also offer and experimentally validate a potential explanation. Our findings imply that MLPA data indicating gain of genomic sequence require validation on an independent sample or by an independent method.
