Types of Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1

Types discussion:

Although MEN1 tends to follow certain patterns, it can affect a person's health in many different ways. Not only do the features of MEN1 vary among members of the same family, but some families with MEN1 tend to have a higher rate of prolactin-secreting pituitary tumors and a much lower frequency of gastrin-secreting tumors.

In addition, the age at which MEN1 can begin to cause endocrine gland overfunction can differ strikingly from one family member to another. One person may have only mild hyperparathyroidism beginning at age 50, while a relative may develop complications from tumors of the parathyroid, pancreas, and pituitary by age 20.

Sometimes a patient with MEN1 knows of no other case of MEN1 among relatives. The commonest explanations are that knowledge about the family is incomplete or that the patient carries a new MEN1 gene mutation. (Source: excerpt from Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1: NIDDK)
