We have established a potential genetic linkage for a family with autosomal
dominant glomus tumors (OMIM 138000). These are the cutaneous neoplasms
consisting of multiple layers of glomus cells lining blood filled cavities,
be to confused with paragangliomata, which are sometimes also called glomus tumors. The study is approved by the Human Subjects committee of the Duke University Medical Center. If anyone knows of any multiple generation
families that would be interested in a genetic linkage study, please contact...
