Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Lynch syndrome provides a paradigm for understanding the history, molecular diagnosis, and management of cancer genetic syndromes in clinical practice. Although Lynch syndrome has been described by several names over the past 40 years, alternative names like hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer are misleadingly restrictive and fail to recognize the lifelong achievement of Dr. Henry Lynch and his colleagues in elucidating the clinical, epidemiologic, and molecular features of this important syndrome.
