Abstract

Bloom's syndrome (BS) is a rare recessive disorder caused by germline mutation of the BLM gene. Individuals with BS manifest growth retardation, immunodeficiency, and a predisposition to cancer. In this report, we describe an individual with BS and multiple colonic adenomas reminiscent of familial adenomatous polyposis coli (FAP). Molecular studies revealed APC mutations in 4 of 6 adenomas, including 2 adenomas with the identical APC mutation and microsatellite instability in I of 6 adenomas. These results demonstrate similar pathways to colorectal neoplasia in BS as in the normal population and suggest that individuals with BS may be particularly susceptible to colorectal neoplasia.
