Report of three novel germline CYLD mutations in unrelated patients with Brooke-Spiegler syndrome, including classic phenotype, multiple familial trichoepitheliomas and malignant transformation


Tantcheva-Poór, Iliana; Vanecek, Tomas; Lurati, Massimo C R; Rychly, Boris; Kempf, Werner; Michal, Michal; Kazakov, Dmitry V (2016). Report of three novel germline CYLD mutations in unrelated patients with Brooke-Spiegler syndrome, including classic phenotype, multiple familial trichoepitheliomas and malignant transformation. Dermatology, 232(1):30-37.

Abstract

Brooke-Spiegler syndrome is a rare autosomal-dominant genetic disorder characterized by multiple adnexal tumors, including cylindromas, spiradenomas, spiradenocylindromas and trichoepitheliomas. It is caused by germline CYLD mutations commonly leading to a premature stop codon. We here report on 3 novel CYLD mutations in 3 unrelated BSS patients, including the classic phenotype, multiple familial trichoepitheliomas phenotype and malignant transformation. These included c.1821_1826+1delinsCT/L607Ffs*9, c.2666A>T/p.D889V and c.2712delT/p.905Kfs*8. By extending the spectrum of CYLD mutations, better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of BSS can be gained, which might later assist in finding new treatment options.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
