Abstract

The Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome is a cancer predisposition syndrome characterized by a predilection to embryonal tumor growth, especially Wilms tumor, adrenocortical carcinomas, and hepatoblastomas. Genetic analysis of patients has revealed a link to the imprinted domain of the 11p15.5 chromosome and methylation status of the H19 locus and Igf-2. These genes have also been studied in other cancers, including ovarian teratomas. Our case is a patient with a simultaneous presentation of a Wilms tumor and immature ovarian teratoma and subsequently diagnosed with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, which has not been previously described.
