Autosomal, dominantly inherited, non-chromaffin paragangliomas are tumors of the head and neck region occurring with a frequency of 1∶30 000. Genomic imprinting probably influences the expression of the disorder, because tumor development is limited to individuals who have inherited the trait from their father. By linkage analysis and haplotyping of a(More)
For families with a small number of cases of breast and/or ovarian cancer, limited data are available to predict the likelihood of genetic predisposition due to mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2. In 104 families with three or more affected individuals (average 3.8) seeking counselling at family cancer clinics, mutation analysis was performed in the open reading(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Familial occurrence of intracranial aneurysms suggests a genetic factor in the development of these aneurysms. In this study, we present the identification of a susceptibility locus for the development of intracranial aneurysms detected by a genome-wide linkage approach in a large consanguineous pedigree. METHODS Patients with(More)
. Patients with a port-wine stain applying for laser treatment often mentioned having a member in the family with a similar birthmark. Of 280 consecutive new patients with a port-wine stain 55 mentioned relatives with the same anomaly. Family tendency (19.6%) for vascular malformations in our group was significantly higher than mentioned by others.(More)
Two new families with glomus tumours and two additions to earlier publications are presented. The pattern of inheritance is autosomal dominant. Familial glomus tumours are inherited almost exclusively via the paternal line, a finding inconsistent with autosomal dominant transmission. This can be explained by genomic imprinting. The maternally derived gene(More)
Intracranial aneurysms (IA) are the major cause of subarachnoid haemorrhages (SAH). A positive family history for SAH is reported in 5-10% of the patients. The mode of inheritance is not unambiguously established; both autosomal dominant and recessive modes have been reported. In sporadic as well as in familial SAH, approximately 60% of the SAH patients are(More)
