The authors review various of the derivatives of the neural crest, consider their relationship with the APUD System, and deduce the physiopathological consequences applicable to these cells, whose only similarity lies in their common embryologic origin. They propose a system of classification of interrelated pathological conditions that these cells may show, an detail clinical information as well as the mode of genetic transmission of the principal neurocristopathic syndroms.
