Hereditary Leiomyomatosis And Renal Cell Cancer: Disease Bioinformatics
Hereditary Leimyomatosis and Renal Cell Cancer (HLRCC) is a rare (100 reported cases worldwide) disease where benign tumors containing smooth muscle tissue (leiomyomas) grow in the skin and in the uterus, for females, around the age of 30-40 years old. The tumors will present themselves all over the body and may be painful, but they are not cancerous. This condition increases the risk of kidney cancer (10-16% of individuals with HLRCC develop renal cell cancer), specifically papillary renal cell cancer type 2. In cases where renal cell cancer does not develop, the disorder may be referred to as cutaneous leiomyoatosis (MCL) or multiple cutaneous and uterine leiomyomatosis (MCUL). Hereditary leimyonatosis and renal cell cancer is caused from mutations in the FH gene which controls the creation of the enzyme fumarase, which functions in the Krebs cycle, allowing cells to use oxygen for energy. This disorder is inherited through an autosomal dominant pattern.
