PHOX2B analysis in non-syndromic neuroblastoma cases shows novel mutations and genotype-phenotype associations.


Neuroblastoma (NB) is an embryonal tumor originating from neural crest cells and is one of the most common solid tumors of childhood. Recently, constitutional mutations in PHOX2B have been shown to confer an increased risk of NB. To date, mutations predisposing to neural crest tumors have been reported in 20 individuals from 16 families. These families… (More)
