Bowel Sounds Ep. 6: Carol Durno and Melyssa Aronson – Polyps Part 2: Lynch Syndrome and CMMRD

In this episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Dr. Jennifer Lee and Peter Lu talk to Dr. Carol Durno and Melyssa Aronson about Lynch Syndrome and Constitutional Mismatch Repair Deficiency (CMMRD).  This is a rare disorder that all gastroenterologists should consider when a polyp is found. Early diagnosis, early screening is critical to the survival of these children.

2) To examine diagnostic strategies for patients with CMMRD and their families
3) To  explain key components of detailed family history and provide strategies to ask sensitive questions such as consanguinity 
4) To outline  the screening recommendations for GI and non-GI cancers in CMMRD
