The BHD Literature Database has been updated with two articles on hereditary cancer syndromes.
Chan-Smutko focussed on hereditary kidney cancer syndromes, reviewing the clinical features of von Hippel-Lindau disease, hereditary papillary renal cell carcinoma, hereditary leiomyomatosis and renal cell carcinoma (HLRCC), hereditary paraganglioma/pheochromocytoma and BHD. The author also proposed a guide to genetic testing for renal cell carcinoma susceptibility.
Gabree and Seidel reviewed the characteristics, diagnosis and management of four hereditary cancer syndromes associated with skin symptoms, including hereditary melanoma, basal cell nevus syndrome, neurofibromatosis type 1 and type 2. The authors also noted BHD and HLRCC.
