Abstract

Chromosomal analyses of cultured lymphocytes from nine patients with familial multiple endocrine adenomatosis (MEA) syndrome type I from six families and two patients - father and daughter - with familial MEA syndrome type II showed an increased frequency of chromosomal breakage. The frequency of sister chromatid exchanges was not increased.
