Categories: Genetic Disorders


Lynch Syndrome, or Hereditary Nonpolyposis Colorectal Cancer (HNPCC), is an autosomal dominant genetic condition that is associated with a high risk of colon cancer as well as other cancers including endometrial, ovary, stomach, small intestine, hepatobiliary tract, upper urinary tract, brain, and skin. The increased risk for these cancers is due to inherited mutations that impair DNA mismatch repair.
