Extracolonic tumours in a pedigree with EPCAM-related Lynch Syndrome.

Eur J Med Genet 2022 May 31;65(5):104479. Epub 2022 Mar 31.

Gastroenterology, Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Porto, Porto, Portugal; Institute for Research Innovation in Health (i3S), University of Porto, Porto, Portugal. Electronic address:

Lynch Syndrome is characterized by phenotypic and genotypic heterogeneity. Despite scarce evidence, individuals with an EPCAM deletion appear to have a comparable risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) as MSH2 mutation carriers, but a lower risk of extracolonic cancer (such as endometrial cancer) unless the deletion extends close to the promoter of MSH2. A genotype-phenotype correlation is yet to be established for EPCAM alterations. Read More
