These tables review the inheritance patterns, involved genes, and clinical findings of the many hereditary syndromes associated with an increased risk of keratinocyte carcinomas. While these genodermatoses present with complex clinical pictures, often affecting multiple organ systems, the identification of an increased risk of skin cancers is crucial.
