AMSTERDAM CRITERIA

the traditional requirements for recognizing a family with genetic nonpolyposis colorectal cancer. The requirements are marked by a three-two-one prototype: three people who have colon cancer, one of which is a family member of the other in the first degree, in two or more generations, with the onslaught being prior to fifty years of age in any number of people, even as small are one.
