Familial testicular carcinoma: in search of genetic triggers.

Author information

Department of Urology, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Queensland, Australia.


Two cases of testicular tumours in non-twin brothers of a cancer-prone family are described. Cytogenetic studies of these two patients and human leucocyte antigen (HLA) typing of the family failed to identify any genetic defects. The authors propose using linkage analysis for further genetic studies but would require additional families for this to be performed.
