INTRODUCTION

Our understanding of genodermatoses continues to expand every year with both detailed genetic knowledge and associated clinical findings. It is important to be able to recognize and decipher these complicated diseases in clinical practice. However, remembering this ever-increasing information for the board exam is daunting. We find it helpful to group disorders within a familiar context to generate a frame of reference. This chart illustrates the autosomal dominant disorders with a potential to develop a malignancy. It also includes helpful mnemonics in red below each genetic syndrome and has bolded associated malignancies to assist in recall.
