View Only- Adult SIG Genomic Case Conference-University of Washington Adult Genetic Medicine Clinic
Hosted by University of Washington
About this course
The Adult Genetics Special Interest Group of the American College of Medical Genetics & Genomics is offering a quarterly live case conference series to discuss interesting, complex and/or challenging genetic disorders seen in adults. A team of genetics providers including clinical geneticists and genetic counselors from select host institutions will present 2-3 cases (as time permits) and lead a live discussion on issues involved in diagnosing and managing adults with genetic disorders. Genetic tests and their results and interpretation will also be reviewed along with issues regarding counseling for at risk family members.
The overarching goal of this educational activity is to create an awareness of genetic complexities observed in adult patients. It will also encourage the adult genetics community to work together towards diagnosis and management of the patient and learn from each other’s experiences.

Session Description:
During this session presented by the Adult Genetics Special Interest Group of the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, genetic experts from University of Washington will discuss clinical management considerations of three cases with complex medical history:
• Patient with cerebral cavernous malformations, Factor V Leiden and coronary artery disease
• Patient with neurofibromatosis type I and breast cancer
• Family with Lynch syndrome and early onset brain cancer
Course Description
Overall Learning Objectives

1. Recognize cardinal signs and symptoms of specific genetic conditions commonly seen in the adult genetics clinics
2. Discuss appropriate diagnostic tools and molecular testing strategies in adult patients with genetic conditions
3. Recognize challenges and limitations in ordering genetic testing in adults with known genetic conditions and become familiar with measures to overcome them
4. Describe the utility of whole exome sequencing in adults and its application in the care of the adult genetics patient

Session Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
1. Recognize signs and symptoms of genetic conditions.
2. Recognize challenges in management of patients with cerebral cavernous malformations and cardiovascular disease.
3. Describe the breast cancer risk associated with NF1.
4. Discuss challenges of genetic counseling in families with hereditary cancer syndromes.
