Amsterdam criteria

(am′stĕr-dam″)

A means of screening family members for evidence of a hereditary predisposition to colorectal cancer. People in families with nonpolyposis colorectal cancer are screened for evidence of other malignancies of the skin, endometrium, and stomach. Those who meet the Amsterdam criteria should be closely followed, e.g., with regular colonoscopies.
