AbstractAbstract PDF
Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an autosomal dominant neoplasia syndrome that result from a germline mutation in the VHL gene. Germline mutation in the VHL gene lead to the development of hemangioblastomas of the central nervous system and retina, cysts and clear cell carcinoma of the kidney, cyst adenomas of other organs, and pheochromocytoma. VHL is a tumor suppressor gene on the short arm of chromosome 3. VHL disease has been classified into two main clinical subtypes depending on the presence (type 2) or absence (type 1) of pheochromocytoma. Type 2 has been subdivided into three categories depending on the presence (type 2B) or absence (type 2A) of renal cell carcinoma, with type 2C being a rare subtype in which pheochromocytoma is the sole manifestation of VHL disease. Recently we experienced a family with VHL type 1 who carry C to T (Q73X) transition in codon 217 nonsense germline mutation in exon 1 of VHL gene. The authors report this case with literature review.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) disease is an autosomal dominant disease, which forms hypervascular tumors in multiple organs, such as hemangioblastomas in the retina and central nervous system, renal cell carcinomas, pheochromocytomas and cysts in various organs. Recent advances in gene testing have made it possible to screen family members for VHL disease. We experienced a 28 year-old male, who was diagnosed with bilateral pheochromocytomas through a family screening test when his elder monozygous twin brother was diagnosed with a pheochromocytoma. He received no treatment until December, 2004, when he visited the Emergency room due to a headache. A hemangioma of the cerebellum was seen in the brain MR study, leading to the diagnosis of type 2A VHL disease. An abdominal CT scan revealed no lesions of the pancreas or kidney. There was no evidence of a hemangioma in the retinal scan. The subsequent gene testing showed a germline mutation in exon 3 codon 167 of the VHL gene. The mother of the patient was revealed to have the same mutation of the VHL gene, but the elder brother of the patient did not.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1(MEN 1) is an autosomal dominantly inherited syndrome, characterized by the combined occurrence of tumors of the parathyroid glands, endocrine pancreas, and anterior pituitary gland. The MENIN gene, which is a kind of tumor suppressor gene, is located at the chromosomal locus 11q13. It consists of one untranslated exon and nine exons encoding the menin protein. We report a case of a 22-yearss-old woman with MEN type 1, who was proven to have a mutation in the MENIN gene. The patient was admitted because of repeated hypoglycemia. The fasting plasma glucose level was 32mg/dL. Seventy two hours fasting test showed an the insulin/glucose ratio as 0.33. Endoscopic ultrasonography detected multiple masses on the pancreas. The arterial -stimulated venous sampling(ASVS) with calcium showed sudden step up of insulin at the head and tail portions of the pancreas. The sellar MRI showed a pituitary mass that produced prolactin. Instead of a pathologic diagnosis from operational specimen, the genetic analysis revealed a mutation in the MENIN 1 gene(exon 2, 200~201insAGCCC).

AbstractAbstract PDF
Multiple endocrine neoplasia I(MEN I) is a genetic disorder that consists of neoplasia of neuroendocrine type in the parathyroid glands, in the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, and in the anterior pituitary gland. Primary hyperparathyroidism is the most common feature and occurs in approximately 95% of MEN I patients. Pancreatic islet cell tumors occur in 40% of MEN I patients. Most of these tumors produce excessive amounts of hormones, such as gastrin, insulin, glucagon and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide(VIP). VIP-producing pancreatic tumors(VIPoma) associated with MEN I are rare and so far only one has been reported in Korea. Recently, we came across a case of MEN I, associated VIPoma presented persistent hypercalcemia after a parathyroidectomy. A 70 year old man had suffered from large amount of watery diarrhea, severe general weakness and paralysis of lower limbs for 3 months which suggests symptoms of hypercalcemia. Before the patient visited our hospital, he underwent subtotal parathyroidectomy due to hyperparathyroidism. Even though he was operation, there was no subsidization of the symptoms and abnormal findings of blood chemistry such as hypercalcemia, hypocalemia were remained unchanged. However, the parathyroid hormone level was still within normal limits. Abdominal computerized tomography scan demonstrated a mass of 2.5cm diameter in tail of the pancreas. As serum level of VIP hormone was also elevated, distal pancreatectomy was carried out to performed. There was improvement in the symptoms towards the normal condition and the level of biochemical parameters such as serum potassium, calcium and VIP, were also within the normal limits. In a direct sequence analysis, GAC-->CAT(Asp-->His) point mutation, at codon 383 of exon 9 of the MEN I gene was identified in both the patient and his son. The authors report a rare case of VIPoma associated with MEN I with review of literature on MEN I.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) type 2A is a syndrome of medullary thyroid carcinomas, pheochromocytomas and parathyroid hyperplasia. The simultaneous occurrence of medullary, and papillary, thyroid carcinomas is rare because they are derived from, apparently, different germ layers, the former from the neuroectoderm and the latter from the endoderm. We report a case of a papillary thyroid carcinoma, combined with a medullary thyroid carcinoma, in a patient with MEN type 2A. Molecular genetic studies for screening a RET proto-oncogene mutation revealed a point mutation in codon 631 on chromosome 10, which is reported as highly uncommon in MEN type 2A.
