Abstract

The occurrence of multiple mucosal neuromas, medullary thyroid carcinoma, and pheochromocytoma in five members of one family is described. Of special interest is the fact that in such cases the oral neuromas appear first and are often evident at birth or during the first few years of life. Their presence in addition to other facial anomalies associated with the syndrome should alert the clinician to the possibility of grave endocrinopathies.
