Colonic and oesophageal disturbance in a patient with multiple endocrine neoplasia, type 2b

Australian and New Zealand Journal of Medicine
J A CuthbertJ R Turtle


We report the illness of a 32-year-old male with the syndrome of multiple endocrine neoplasia, type 2b, which comprises medullary carcinoma of the thyroid, phaeochromocytoma, oral mucosal neuromas and skeletal deformity. The patient also had evidence of ganglioneuromatosis of the alimentary tract, a finding which is held to be responsible for constipation and a number of the other gastrointestinal manifestations of the MEN, 2b. Dysphagia, which has not been previously reported in the syndrome was also present. Investigations of the oesophagus which included endoscopy, radiology and a motility study support the diagnosis of achalasia as the cause of the dysphagia.
