27 May 2019 (Monday) - Li-Fraumeni Syndrome

The nice people at Lablogatory sent their update today. To be honest I didn’t really take that much notice of it. In the first paragraph was mention of Li-Fraumeni Syndrome. I’d never heard of that before.

Wikipedia has a very simplified summary of the condition, but in the first instance, a very simplified summary isn’t a bad thing. In a nutshell this syndrome is a malfunction of the tumour suppressing systems, and is an autosomal dominant hereditary condition… which begs the question that given the prevalence of tumours in these children, how do they live long enough to breed?

I might just read up on this…
