Summaries for Cylindromatosis, Familial

OMIM : 54
The disorders classically referred to as familial cylindromatosis, Brooke-Spiegler syndrome, and multiple familial trichoepithelioma were originally described as distinct clinical entities. Patients with BRSS develop multiple skin appendage tumors including cylindromas, trichoepitheliomas, and spiradenomas. Patients with familial cylindromatosis have only cylindromas, and those with MFT1 have only trichoepitheliomas. However, because these disorders show overlapping phenotypic features, and because different manifestations of each have been described within a single family, many consider these disorders to represent a phenotypic spectrum of a single disease entity (Guggenheim and Schnyder, 1961; Welch et al., 1968; Gerretsen et al., 1995; Lee et al., 2005; Bowen et al., 2005; Young et al., 2006; Saggar et al., 2008). Van Balkom and Hennekam (1994), who preferred the designation 'dermal eccrine cylindromatosis' for familial cylindromatosis, provided a review. 'Eccrine' referred to histologic evidence that the tumors may originate from the eccrine sweat glands. Blake and Toro (2009) provided a detailed review of the spectrum of disorders associated with CYLD mutations. (132700)

MalaCards based summary : Cylindromatosis, Familial, also known as familial cylindromatosis, is related to brooke-spiegler syndrome and adenoiditis, and has symptoms including subcutaneous nodule, teleangiectasia of the skin and neoplasm of the skin. An important gene associated with Cylindromatosis, Familial is CYLD (CYLD Lysine 63 Deubiquitinase). The drugs Cyclophosphamide and Alkylating Agents have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin and eye.

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Familial cylindromatosis is a condition involving multiple skin tumors that develop from structures associated with the skin (skin appendages), such as hair follicles and sweat glands. People with familial cylindromatosis typically develop large numbers of tumors called cylindromas. While previously thought to derive from sweat glands, cylindromas are now generally believed to begin in hair follicles.

NIH Rare Diseases : 50 cylindromas are non-cancerous (benign) tumors that develop from the skin. they most commonly occur on the head and neck and rarely become cancerous (malignant).  an individual can develop one or many cylindromas; if a person develops only one, the cylindroma likely occurred by chance and typically is not inherited. they usually begin to form during mid-adulthood as a slow-growing, rubbery nodule that causes no symptoms. the development of multiple cylindromas can be hereditary and is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner; this condition is called familial cylindromatosis.  individuals with the inherited form begin to develop many, rounded nodules of various size shortly after puberty. the tumors grow very slowly and increase in number over time. last updated: 2/18/2015

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 71 Cylindromatosis, familial: A disorder characterized by multiple skin tumors that develop from skin appendages, such as hair follicles and sweat glands. Affected individuals typically develop large numbers of tumors called cylindromas that arise predominantly in hairy parts of the body with approximately 90% on the head and neck. In severely affected individuals, cylindromas may combine into a confluent mass which may ulcerate or become infected (turban tumor syndrome). Individuals with familial cylindromatosis occasionally develop other types of tumors including spiradenomas that begin in sweat glands, and trichoepitheliomas arising from hair follicles.
