Mutations of the PTEN gene have long been linked with cancer. Recently, however, researchers at the Cleveland Clinic have found that PTEN mutations are found in a small subgroup (about 1-2%) of children who have autism.

Blog: PTEN Gene for Concerned Parents... There is so much to tell!  Cameron is 3 years, 3 months old and he is a smart boy!  Cam has been said to have PTEN Macrocephaly Autism:  a mutation of his PTEN gene, which is from what I understand the tumor suppressor gene.  To me, this means that without proper function of the gene, cells can grow quickly - both good cells and bad cells. http://ptenparents.blogspot.co.uk/. Last blog post: 02.2013

How to Turn on Cancer Fighting Genes: Dr Nalini Chilkov. Here is a list of plant medicines that contain constituents that may talk to your PTEN gene and turn it on, get it activated or prevent damage and malformation (mutation) of the PTEN gene. • Quercetin...      • Resveratrol... • Genistein and Daedzein...     • Curcumin...    • Honokiol... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nalini-chilkov/how-to-turn-on-a-gene-tha_b_926755.html

An atypical patient with Cowden syndrome and PTEN gene mutation presenting with cortical malformation and focal epilepsy...  CS has been rarely reported in association with a cortical malformation or epilepsy... These cases suggest that cortical dysplasia needs to be suspected when a CS patient presents with drug-resistant seizures.    http://www.brainanddevelopment.com/article/S0387-7604(12)00070-8/abstract  Image…

Cowden's/ Bannayan Riliey Ruvalcaba syndrome.   My husband and I discovered that our young son (now 34 months) had a PTEN gene mutation. He had undergone genetic testing to try to establish if there was a cause of his developmental delay, macrocephaly (large head) and autistic behaviour. http://hannahjanelee.wordpress.com/tag/cowden-syndrome/

Bannayan Ruvalcaba Riley Syndrome (PTEN gene mutation):  Usually diagnosed early in life. Symptoms may include macrocephaly, lipomatosis, hemangiomas, pigmented macules of the penis, high birth weight, proximal myopathy, joint hyperextensibility, pectus excavatum, scoliosis, developmental delay.... Intestinal polyposis is seen in up to 45% of patients predominantly in the distal ileum and colon... http://acgcasereports.gi.org/2014/01/10/bannayan-ruvalcaba-riley-syndrome/. Linked  with…
