Abstract

Colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence in Puerto Rico has increased prodigiously since incidence figures were first recorded in 1950. Implications for hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) in concert with this increased CRC incidence are discussed. A family with the Amsterdam-positive criteria of the Lynch syndrome II variant, identified in the eastern area of Puerto Rico, is described. As far as we can determine, this is the first such report of this disorder in Puerto Rico.
