Germline mutations as potential causes of childhood solid tumours: Comments on the Norwegian childhood cancer cohort study editorial

Yaddanapudi Ravindranath, Logan G. Spector

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Some cancer predisposing germline mutations cause overt birth defects and congenital anomalies. Others are clinically silent and can only be suspected by the presence of increased cancer incidence in family members. A new study shows that long-term monitoring of families may be needed to discover previously unsuspected underlying cancer predisposing mutations.
