Introduction PTEN gene mutations are responsible for the PTEN hamartoma tumor syndrome (PHTS). In this study, clinical and molecular findings of patients carrying PTEN mutations are presented. Our aim is to contribute to genotype-phenotype correlation and define the most common findings of the syndrome in pediatric patients.
