Abstract

Cowden disease is a rare autosomal-dominant phacomatosis and cancer syndrome that is associated with Lhermitte-Duclos disease (LDD), also called dysplastic cerebellar gangliocytoma. In this review the authors summarize the additions to the literature during the past 5 years, with emphas...read more

Hamartoma Syndrome, Multiple

Multiple Hamartoma Syndrome, also known as Cowden disease, is a hereditary autosomal dominant condition associated with mutations in tumor suppressor PTEN. Here is the latest research.

Cerebellar Neoplasms

Tumors within the cerebellum of the brain can be malignant or benign. This is often a secondary site for metastasis from other cancers, including lung and breast cancer. Symptoms of cerebellar tumors include ataxia and intracranial hypertension. Here is the latest research on cerebellar neoplasms.

Neurocutaneous Syndromes

Neurocutaneous syndromes include congenital disorders involving tumor growth in the brain, spinal cord, organs, skin, and bones. These syndromes include tuberous sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, and Sturge-Weber disease. Find the latest research on neurocutaneous syndromes here.

Tuberous Sclerosis

Tuberous Sclerosis (TSC) is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder caused by mutations in TSC1 or TSC2 tumor suppressor genes and characterized by the development of benign hamartomas in multiple organs. Here is the latest research.
