We discuss the computation of the topological susceptibility using the method of spectral pro- jectors and dynamical twisted mass fermions. We present our analysis concerning the O(a)- improvement of the topological susceptibility and we show numerical results for N f = 2 and N f = 2 + 1 + 1 flavours, performing a study of the quark mass dependence in terms of leading order chiral perturbation theory.
