Familial endocrine adenomatosis (author's transl)

Medizinische Klinik

The combination of pituitary and thyroid gland adenomatosis is reported in four family members of two generations. This finding of dominant inheritance is discussed with special reference to multiple familial adenomatosis, also known as Wermer's syndrome. The endocrine status including dynamic function tests is presented. It is our intention to point out that in cases of monoglandular adenomatosis clinical attention should be directed not only to anterior pituitary and thyroid gland but also to their possible incidence with tumours of the parathyroid gland and the islet cell organ.
