This study of identical twins affected with xeroderma pigmentosum, with follow-up and re-evaluation after a period of eight years, is unique in that it demonstrates clearly the value of cancer control methods, primarily the avoidance of solar radiation. The findings in the identical twins have been evaluated in context with their other affected siblings who also have shown a remarkable low rate of skin cancer upon initiation of cancer control (solar radiation avoidance).
