Multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes (MEN) are genetic disorders with glandular hyperplasia and consecutive malignant neoplasia. MEN type 2B is the least common form of these tumor syndromes. It presents with typical dysmorphic features, mucosal neuromas, ganglioneuromatosis, medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) and phaeochromocytoma. The prognosis depends on the presence of MTC.
