A large family with adrenoleukodystrophy is described and the case histories of two clinically symptomatic and related male patients are presented. Clinical, biochemical and genetic screening of their family demonstrated two clinically affected males, one biochemically affected male and five carrier females. Two women were symptomatic; one suffered an acute(More)
Paragangliomas of the head and neck (glomus tumours) can occur in a hereditary pattern and may be hormonally active as well as being associated with paragangliomas elsewhere. A number of these tumours may be present without symptoms. To detect the presence of subclinical paragangliomas we screened 83 members of a family at risk of developing hereditary(More)
