Constitutional mismatch repair deficiency syndrome
Constitutional mismatch repair deficiency syndrome is a rare, inherited cancer-predisposing syndrome characterized by the development of a broad spectrum of malignancies during childhood, including mainly brain, hematological and gastrointestinal cancers, although embryonic and other tumors have also been occasionally reported. Non-neoplastic features, in particular manifestations reminiscent of neurofibromatosis type 1 (e.g., café-au-lait spots, freckling, neurofibromas), as well as premalignant and non-malignant lesions (such as adenomas/polpyps) are frequently present before malignancy development.
