1. Parkinson's Cluster
Is there evidence for a genetic component to Parkinson's Disease? I have
just learned of a cluster of 12 individuals who might be related by a
founder effect. Any information would be appreciated.

2. Microtia

I've just seen two unrelated Latin American patients with isolated
bilateral Microtia III (no spinal anomalies, no facial dysmorphism). The
first, a little boy, has no family history, and the family was given a low
recurrence risk.  The second, a little girl has a distant family history
(father's mother's sister and that person's child) of _unilateral_
microtia.  I have examined the father and his ears are normal.  He reports
that his mother's ears also are normal.  Literature is all over the board.
I would appreciate any advice regarding couseling this family on recurrence
risk.  Based upon what I have found, I am inclined towards telling them
that their empiric risk is about 5%, but that it may be as high as 50%.

3.NF2--Patient Request
Apparent Pt Location: England

Dear all,
          I am keen to know as much as possible about the latest research
into NF2.     I am a patient of the disorder, and would appreciate any
particularly about new forms of (non-surgical) treatment.
