Draper et al. 4 per cent for all tumours and 6 per cent for osteosarcoma. 7 per cent respectively, and thus patients with genetic retinoblastoma may be more sensitive to radiation-induced oncogenesis. The most common site of osteosarcoma outside the radiation field is in the femur, and genetic retinoblastoma patients are at a 200– 500-fold increased risk of this complication. Soft tissue sarcomas also occur with increased frequency in patients with genetic retinoblastoma. , 1988). Moll et al. (1996) estimated cumulative incidences of second primary tumours in hereditary retinoblastoma of 4 per cent and 18 per cent at ages 10 and 35 years respectively.

2002). Pituitary adenoma may develop in CNC (see section below) and chromophobe adenomas may possibly have an increased frequency in Maffucci syndrome (see section below) (Schnall and Genuth, 1976). Both somatic tumour suppressor gene inactivation and oncogene activation have been implicated in the pathogenesis of pituitary tumours. Chromosome 11 allele loss (the MEN1 gene maps to chromosome 11q13) is the most frequent event in sporadic pituitary adenomas, and chromosome 13 allele loss is also frequent.
