Abstract

A mother and son from an extended, well-documented kindred with the cancer family syndrome developed proximal colonic cancer within 3 wk of each other. Recognition of the mother as an obligate gene carrier (syndrome cancer risk approximately 100%) was possible following demonstration of the cancer family syndrome in her son.
