Renal Cystadenocarcinoma and Nodular Dermatofibrosis

Renal Cystadenocarcinoma and Nodular Dermatofibrosis (RCND) is a rare, naturally occurring inherited cancer syndrome characterized by bilateral tumors in the kidneys, uterine leiomyomas, and multiple fibrous nodules in the skin.

RCND has an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance which means that only one copy of the defective gene is required to cause the disease. There is strong evidence that two copies of the defective gene may have a lethal effect. Diagnoses of suspected carriers should be made before the dogs are used for breeding.
