We report a novel germline 5369delATTT mutation in BRCA2 gene, detected in a 45-year-old woman with bilateral breast cancer.
This deletion was also detected in her father with prostatic cancer and her sister with breast cancer. The mutation originates a premature stop at codon 1723 of BRCA2 protein and has not been documented in any published report to the best of our knowledge.
