[Usefulness of the genetic study in the diagnosis of medullary carcinoma of the thyroid].

Abstract

Germ-line mutations in the RET proto-oncogene are associated with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A (MEN 2A) and with familial medullary thyroid carcinoma (FMTC). Detection of these mutations allows the identification of the affected kindred members, who will develop medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in 100% of cases. We studied 24 patients of two… (More)
