The multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is a rare syndrome characterized by the predisposition to developing multiple endocrine and non-endocrine tumors, typically characterized by the association between parathyroid gland hyperplasia or tumors, gastroenteropancreatic tumors and pituitary adenomas.

Abstract

The multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is a rare syndrome characterized by the predisposition to developing multiple endocrine and non-endocrine tumors, typically characterized by the association between parathyroid gland hyperplasia or tumors, gastroenteropancreatic tumors and pituitary adenomas. The MEN1 gene is located on the long arm of chromosome 11 (11q13) and it encodes for the protein “menin”. We here reported the case of a MEN1-patient, affected by primary hyperparathyroidism, insulinoma, pituitary non-hyperfunctioning adenoma and bilateral adrenal masses, carrying a novel heterozygous pathogenic variant (c.1252_1254delGACinsAT), located in exon 9 of MEN1 gene.
