Male Infertility: Genetic Link with HLRCC Erika Tabke, 2010

There is not a lot of information in this link. Dr. McKelvey's team conducted a comprehensive case study to better understand the link between HLRCC and male infertility. Male infertility has not previously been linked to this disease. It is of interest to indicate that there may be other conditions associated with HLRCC.


A Novel Role of Fumarate Metabolism in Dahl-Salt Sensitive Hypertension Zhongmin Tian, Yong Liu, Kristie Usa, Domagoj Mladinov, Yi Fang,Xiaoqiang Ding, Andrew S. Greene, Allen W. Cowley, Jr., and Mingyu Liang, 2009

An article relating high blood pressure with high fumarate levels for salt related blood pressure.

Origin and Molecular Pathology of Adrenocortical Neoplasms M. Bielinska, H. Parviainen, S. Kiiveri, M. Heikinheimo, and D.B. Wilson, 2009

Massive Macronodular Adrenocortical Disease (MMAD) is another rare condition thought to be related to HLRCC.


Cerebral Cavernomas in a Family with Multiple Cutaneous and Uterine Leiomyomas Associated with a New Mutation in the Fumarate Hydratase Gene Elena Campione, Alessandro Terrinoni, Augusto Orlandi, Andrea Codispoti, Gerry Melino, Luca Bianchi, Annamaria Mazzotta, Francesco Giuseppe Garaci, Andrea Ludovici, and Sergio Chimenti, 2007

Cerebral Cavernomas is another rare condition thought to be related to HLRCC.

This article describes the finding of benign ovarian mucinous cystadenoma in two families with FH mutations (HLRCC and Fumarase Deficiency).


Multiple familial cutaneous leiomyoma Cairey-Remonnay S, Salard D, Algros MP, Laurent R. ,2003

This is link to an abstract of an article in English. The full text in French is available on subscription. It is of interest because of indicating a possible link between HLRCC and polycythemia and also myeloid leukemia.


This describes fumarase as used in food production. We are what we eat!
