A 20-year-old woman presented for a routine eye examination. Her best-corrected visual acuity was 20/20 in the right eye and 20/25 in the left eye. Fundus examination revealed in both eyes the presence of multiple egg-shaped hyperpigmented retinal lesions (at least 4), sur-rounded by a depigmented halo(figure 1, black arrows). The appearance of these lesions was suggestive of congenital hypertrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (CHRPE). The patient's medical history and general examination… 
Torpedo-like lesions in the ocular fundi of Gardner syndrome: hiding in plain view
TLDR
A confirmed case of Gardner syndrome with numerous fundus torpedoes is reported, demonstrating shared features of the fundus lesions in both diseases, and it is hypothesized that they may have genetic as well as ophthalmoscopic similarities in common.
Ocular manifestations of dermal paraneoplastic syndromes
TLDR
A review of the literature about eye disorders in association with dermal paraneoplastic syndromes finds that many of them may also cause ocular changes that can lead to serious complications and demand multidisciplinary co-operation with an ophthalmologist.
Altered neural networks and cognition in a hereditary colon cancer
TLDR
Data indicate robust and pervasive effects on functional neural network activity among FAP patients and these effects are likely involved in cognitive deficits associated with this disease.
Altered Resting State Brain Networks and Cognition in Familial Adenomatous Polyposis
TLDR
Data indicate robust and pervasive effects on functional neural network activity among FAP patients and these effects are likely involved in cognitive deficits associated with this disease.
