Newly reported from the USA: Individuals With BAP1 Have High Rate of Nail Abnormalities

Individuals with BRCA1-associated protein (BAP1) have a high rate of nail abnormalities consistent with onychopapillomas, according to a study published online May 17 in JAMA Dermatology to coincide the annual meeting of the Society for Investigative Dermatology, held from May 15 to 18 in Dallas.

Alexandra Lebensohn, from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, and colleagues examined the prevalence of nail abnormalities in individuals with pathogenic germline variants in BAP1 in a prospective cohort study. Data were included for 47 participants, aged 13 to 72 years, from 35 families.
