This manuscript reports the consensus recommendations on screening and diagnosis of Lynch syndrome (LS) in patients with endometrial or ovarian cancer as well as on possible preventive measures in effectively LS-diagnosed women. The recommendations are issued by the Austrian Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Gynäkologische Onkologie (AGO) of the Österreichischen Gesellschaft für Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe (OEGGG) after consultation of the most recent and relevant literature and following deliberation by the Genetic Task-Force convoked May, 2015 by the AGO Council. The Austrian AGO recommends immunohistochemical tissue screening for type-I and type-II endometrial cancers in all patients below the age of 70 years, and for all endometrioid and clear-cell ovarian cancers independently of the patient's age. If needed immunohistochemistry should be complemented by tissue MLH1 promotor hypermethylation testing and/or microsatellite instability (MSI) analysis. The diagnosis LS requires confirmation through identification of a germline mutation by a molecular genetic examination in the mismatch repair genes using the patient's blood. This should be performed without preceding tissue screening when in LS-associated cancer patients the family history fulfills the Amsterdam II or the revised Bethesda criteria. In LS-diagnosed women, the age for prophylactic surgery should be set flexibly based on an informed consent. Regarding the monitoring of these women, chemo-preventive measures as well as screening procedures either to avoid or to early detect LS-related tumors are discussed with a special light on their specific limitations.
