1999). In a molecular genetic survey of 121 cerebral cavernous haemangioma probands with familial and/or multiple lesions, Cave-Riant et al. (2002) found germline KRIT1 mutations in 43 per cent. , 1998), and these are estimated to account for about 20 and 40 per cent of families, respectively. Characterisation of the CCM2 gene was reported by Liquori et al. (2003). 16 Genetics of human cancers by site of origin Meningeal haemangioma and facial naevus ﬂammeus constitute the Sturge– Weber syndrome, and cerebral vascular lesions occur in Rendu–Osler–Weber syndrome.
These syndromes are described in detail in the next section. Thyroid cancers can be detected in 5–25 per cent of FAP patients. It should be noted that there is preliminary evidence that what is commonly referred to as “PTC” in FAP is not identical to classic PTC. , 1994). In contrast to classic PTC, FAP-related thyroid cancers do not show the typical ﬁr tree branching papillary pattern, and psammoma bodies are rare or non-existent. , 1994). , 1999). While thyroid tumours, for example, PTC, have been reported in CNC, it is currently unclear if PTC are true component cancers of CNC.
Familial glioma not associated with the inherited syndromes described above occurs, but is uncommon, and has been reviewed in detail by Vieregge et al. (1987). Of 39 reports, most (60 per cent) were of affected siblings, and one quarter was of affected twins or of individuals with affected relatives in two generations. There were three pairs of monozygotic twins with glioma. In most affected sibling cases, the onset in the second sibling was usually within 5 years of that of the ﬁrst sibling. A high incidence of cerebral glioma was found in an isolated inbred community by Armstrong and Hanson (1969) and Thuwe et al.
