Abstract

Endocrine polyadenomatosis forms but a part of the larger group of neurocristopathy disorders. This term includes those affections due to lesions of cells, tissues, or organs derived from the neural crest. The common origin of the various neuro-endocrine cells within the neural crest suggests that there is a denominator of embryologic pathogenicity for the different polyendocrine affections. Knowledge of these is essential for early diagnosis of the different neuro-endocrine lesions, together with a systematic search for any familial associations.
