A case of Mulibrey nanism with associated Wilms' tumor

Clin Genet. 1980 Jan;17(1):29-30. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-0004.1980.tb00109.x.


The occurrence of a nephroblastoma in a 2-year-old girl with Mulibrey nanism is reported. As this tumor has also been reported in some other "mesodermal dysgenesis" syndromes, it seems probable that patients with this form of congenital disease run an abnormally high risk of Wilms' tumor.
