Multiple endocrine neoplasia, type III

International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Abstract

Multiple oral plexiform neuromas in a 14-year-old white girl prompting screening of the patient with respect to the multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) type-III syndrome, verified the existence of a thyroid medullary carcinoma and the diagnosis MEN-type III. Total thyroidectomy was performed, but extensive tumour infiltration prevented radical tumour excision. The condition being relatively infrequent, the important life-saving role of dental practitioners and oral surgeons in its recognition and early diagnosis is emphasized.
