My Gene Counsel collects cases in which genetic tests were recommended, ordered, interpreted, or used incorrectly and/or in which clinicians faced challenges related to history/reports provided by patients/laboratories. These cases are aggregated and used to support a series of articles published in peer-reviewed journals. Clinicians who submit cases that are used in published articles will have the option of submitting under their name/institution or remaining anonymous.

To submit a case, email the following information to

          • Key medical and family history (note/pedigree if available)
          • Genetic testing performed/recommended and result
          • Explanation of challenge/error and how it was handled

Genetic Testing Challenges in Oncology

In publishing this series, our aim is to educate experts in the field and foster discussion.

Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles

An ongoing case series documenting challenges and errors in genetic counseling and testing and the impact on medical liability, healthcare costs, and patients and their families. Increased access to and complexity of genetic information, often without genetics expertise, continue to contribute to such challenges.
