München, Germany. In Mol Cell Endocrinol, Mar 2016
Multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) syndromes are autosomal dominant diseases with high penetrance characterized by proliferative lesions (usually hyperplasia or adenoma) arising in at least two endocrine tissues.
Clinicopathological correlates of hyperparathyroidism.
Toronto, Canada. In J Clin Pathol, Oct 2015
While most cases (95%) occur sporadically, about 5% are associated with a hereditary syndrome: multiple endocrine neoplasia syndromes (MEN-1, MEN-2A, MEN-4), hyperparathyroidism-jaw tumour syndrome (HPT-JT), familial hypocalciuric hypercalcaemia (FHH-1, FHH-2, FHH-3), familial hypercalciuric hypercalcaemia, neonatal severe hyperparathyroidism and isolated familial hyperparathyroidism.
