There is an error in the XML that is causing the fourteenth author’s name, Ida Vanessa D. Schwartz, to be indexed incorrectly. The name should be indexed as Schwartz, IVD.

There is an error in the seventh sentence of the fifth paragraph of the Discussion section. The correct sentence is: Therefore, it is surprising that in our population 2.5% of all carriers were double heterozygotes besides one patient carrying two BRCA2 pathogenic variants.

In the Author Contribution section, Bárbara Alemar (BA) should be listed as one of the persons who took part in the conceptualization of the paper.
