The BHD Literature Database has been updated with a review by Ponti et al. of hereditary tumour syndromes associated with cutaneous symptoms. The authors examined current research into the etiology, pathogenesis and therapies for BHD, HLRCC, Cowden’s syndrome, Brooke-Spiegler syndrome, Gardner syndrome, Muir-Torre syndrome, neurofibromatosis and nevoid basal cell carcinoma (Gorlin) syndrome.
Additionally, the authors noted that recognizing the dermatological signs of these symptoms early will enable accurate diagnosis.
