The literature data base has been updated with three papers:
Claessens et al. review the role of FLCN in cilia function, membrane trafficking, and several signalling pathways. They then discuss the pathogenesis and treatment of the cutaneous manifestations of Birt-Hogg-Dubé and raise the possibility that fibrofolliculomas arise from the sebaceous glands rather than hair follicles.
Schmidt and Zbar have written a review chapter on Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome for the Online Metabolic and Molecular Bases of Inherited Disease website.
