Is Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 Contagious?

Infection and Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 is not related to infection.

Contagion summary:

MEN1 is not an infectious or contagious disease, nor is it caused by environmental factors. Because MEN1 is a genetic disorder inherited from one parent, and its transmission pattern is well understood, family members at high risk for the disorder can be easily identified. (Source: excerpt from Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1: NIDDK)
