Bronchial carcinoids and hormonal disorder

Southern Medical Journal
C Marks, P H Marks

Abstract

The relationship between bronchial carcinoids and hormonal disorder is reviewed in the light of a study of 24 patients with carcinoid tumors of the bronchus. In this series, two patients presented with manifestations of the polyendocrine disorder. The common origin of carcinoid tumors and other APUD cells from neural crest ectoderm provides a common denominator in the association of carcinoid tumors of the bronchus and adenomas, or carcinoma of associated endocrine organs.

Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes

This feed focuses on a rare genetic condition called Autoimmune Polyendocrine Syndromes, which are characterized by autoantibodies against multiple endocrine organs. This can lead to Type I Diabetes.

Autoimmune Polyendocrinopathies

Autoimmune polyendocrinopathies, also called polyglandular autoimmune syndromes (PGASs), or polyendocrine autoimmune syndromes(PASs), are a heterogeneous group of rare diseases characterized by autoimmune activity against more than one endocrine organ, although non-endocrine organs can be affected.
