A Systematic Review of How Young People Live with Inherited Disease: What Can We Learn for Li-Fraumeni Syndrome?

Summary of "A Systematic Review of How Young People Live with Inherited Disease: What Can We Learn for Li-Fraumeni Syndrome?"

Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS), a multiorgan cancer predisposition caused by germline TP53 mutations, confers significant cancer risks for young people (15-39 years). Yet evidence of how individuals experience this condition and the psychosocial implications are lacking. Therefore, this systematic review assessed the psychosocial implications of living with, or at risk of, an autosomal dominant condition as a young person, to draw evidence that may be analogous for young people with LFS.
