High penetrance of pheochromocytoma in multiple endocrine neoplasia 2 caused by germ line RET codon 634 mutation in Japanese patients.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The precise penetrance of pheochromocytoma (PHEO) in multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2) has not been reported in a large cohort. In this study, we aimed to clarify the codon-specific penetrance of PHEO in MEN2. DESIGN We established a study group designated the 'MEN Consortium of Japan' in 2008 and asked physicians and surgeons to… (More)
