Abstract

Two brothers developed multiple primary neoplasms in childhood; one had glioblastoma and non‐Hodgkin's lymphoma at age 11 years, and the other brain tumor and acute leukemia at six years. A third brother died with myelogenous leukemia at three years, and a fourth with cyanotic congential heart disease at 11 weeks. Each child aiso had at least one hamartomatous lesion of the skin. The clinical features suggested von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis or other inherited cancer syndrome, but laboratory studies identified no markers of susceptibility to familial neoplasia.
