Abstract

Three female patients (ages 10, 18 & 25 years) with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 3 are reported. They had all characteristic facial appearances, with mucosal neuromata, rubbery swollen lips, tubercles on the tongue and eversion of the eye lids. Clinical signs and symptoms appeared to be progressive with increase in age, suggesting the importance of the correct diagnosis and early evaluation of endocrine function leading to a better prognosis for the patient.
