BHD Literature Database Updated

The BHD Literature Database has been updated with several new papers.

Park et al. reported on a 43-year-old man who presented with trichodiscomas and was found to carry a FLCN mutation. The case study by Shin et al. discussed a 54 year-old man presenting with fibrofolliculomas and a history of spontaneous pneumothorax, who was also found to be positive for FLCN mutation.

Truchuelo et al. published their results on treating fibrofolliculomas with a CO2 laser in two patients.

Houweling et al. presented a large-scale analysis of 115 BHD patients from 35 families to determine the respective risk of renal cancer and spontaneous pneumothorax as well as to assess renal tumour histologies in BHD.
