Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is a familial cancer syndrome characterized by the combined occurrence of tumours of the parathyroid glands, pancreatic islet cells and anterior pituitary gland. Mutation analysis of the MEN1 gene has enabled the genetic diagnosis of patients with MEN1. Two MEN1-related disorders - familial isolated hyperparathyroidism (FIHP) and familial pituitary adenoma - are considered to be variants of MEN1, or at least to be incompletely expressed variants… CONTINUE READING
