Abstract

Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (Lynch syndromes) has been reported in the international literature over the last decade. We now present a case of a family with Lynch II syndrome, in which five first-degree relatives were affected by colorectal cancer; in addition, the two female patients had ovarian or breast cancer.
