Abstract

Objectives: The identification of constitutional cytogenetic abnormalities in patients with cancer may indicate loci of genes, abnormalities of which are responsible for tumor development or progression. This study was undertaken to determine whether girls with Turner's syndrome (TS) (partial or complete deletion of an X chromosome, short stature, gonadal dysgenesis) are at increased risk of neural crest-derived tumors.
