Recognising PTEN hamartoma tumour syndrome for early cancer detection

Prof. Nicoline Hoogerbrugge, professor in hereditary cancer at the Radboud university Medical Center, Nijmegen, will be the speaker during this lecture on PTEN hamartoma tumour syndrome (PHTS). She will base her lecture on her long time experience of being a medical doctor of more than 130 PHTS patients.

One of the topics will be the diversity of the clinical phenotype in relation to recognition and diagnosis. Additionally, the lifetime risks of cancer as well as the surveillance program for early cancer detection will be discussed, based on the recent European guideline on PHTS which were published in the Eur J Hum Genet. 2020 (PMID: 32533092).
