Cancer Screening for M-CM Patients, New Recommendation for CLOVES Syndrome

The need for cancer screening in M-CM remains unclear, but a recommendation has just been made for CLOVES, a syndrome with some overlapping characteristics.  Patients under 8 years with an uncertain M-CM diagnosis and characteristics of CLOVES will want to consider a Wilms tumor screening protocol if they are not following one already. You can read more about the recommendation on the website of CLOVES Syndrome Community.  There is more information about cancer screening in M-CM in our syndrome description.
