Abstract

Background/Aims: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is an autosomal dominant syndrome characterized by tumors arising from endocrine glands with no specific genotype-phenotype correlation. Here, we report the largest Turkish kindred with MEN1 syndrome which inherited a scarce MEN1 mutation gene.
