Abstract

The simultaneous occurrence of mutations in two different tumor suppressor genes in the same individual is a very rare event. Here we report the case of a woman in whom germline mutations in both MEN1 and BRCA1 were identified. The severity of MEN1-related biochemical and clinical findings did not significantly differ from that for other affected family members lacking the BRCA1 mutation, except for the development of an extremely large visceral lipoma; the proband has not developed any BRCA1-related malignancies. We explore genetic and molecular rationales for an association between these neoplastic processes.
