Physiology, physiopathology, and classification of polyendocrine adenomatosis (author's transl)

Annales de médecine interne
G Turpin, S Jambart


The various elements derived from the neural crest are reviewed and their relationship with the APUD system discussed. The resulting physiopathological consequences imply that there is a common embryonic origin for cells which appear to be unrelated. A classification of the various pathological affections involving these cells, is proposed.
