Bloom Syndrome Testing
Bloom syndrome is a rare inherited disorder caused by a mutation of the BLM gene. Affected individuals are observed to have an increased likelihood of developing cancer at a young age. Although a smaller fraction of the population is confirmed to have the disorder, it is notable that Ashkenazi Jewish descendants consist of about one-third of the people who have Bloom syndrome.
