Guidelines for the clinical management of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP)
Background: Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is a well-described inherited syndrome, which is responsible for <1% of all colorectal cancer (CRC) cases. The syndrome is characterised by theExpand

High proportion of large genomic deletions and a genotype–phenotype update in 80 unrelated families with juvenile polyposis syndrome
Background: In patients with juvenile polyposis syndrome (JPS) the frequency of large genomic deletions in the SMAD4 and BMPR1A genes was unknown. Methods: Mutation and phenotype analysis was used inExpand

Expanded extracolonic tumor spectrum in MUTYH-associated polyposis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS MUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP) is characterized by a lifetime risk of colorectal cancer of up to 100%. However, no systematic evaluation of extracolonic manifestations has beenExpand

Somatic APC mosaicism: a frequent cause of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP)
Somatic mutational mosaicism presents a challenge for both molecular and clinical diagnostics and may contribute to deviations from predicted genotype–phenotype correlations. During APC mutationExpand

High proportion of large genomic STK11 deletions in Peutz‐Jeghers syndrome
Germline mutations in the STK11 gene have been identified in 10–70% of patients with Peutz‐Jeghers syndrome (PJS), an autosomal‐dominant hamartomatous polyposis syndrome. A second locus was assumedExpand

MUTYH‐associated polyposis: 70 of 71 patients with biallelic mutations present with an attenuated or atypical phenotype
To determine the frequency, mutation spectrum and phenotype of the recently described autosomal recessive MUTYH‐associated polyposis (MAP), we performed a systematic search for MUTYH (MYH) mutationsExpand

Analysis of MUTYH genotypes and colorectal phenotypes in patients With MUTYH-associated polyposis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Biallelic mutations in the base excision DNA repair gene MUTYH lead to MUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP) and predisposition to colorectal cancer (CRC). Functional studies haveExpand

Exome Sequencing Identifies Biallelic MSH3 Germline Mutations as a Recessive Subtype of Colorectal Adenomatous Polyposis.
In ∼30% of families affected by colorectal adenomatous polyposis, no germline mutations have been identified in the previously implicated genes APC, MUTYH, POLE, POLD1, and NTHL1, although aExpand
