Abstract
Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) is characterized by the combined occurrence of primary hyperparathyroidism, enteropancreatic tumors and anterior pituitary adenoma. Yet carcinoid tumors, adrenal adenoma and lipoma might exist simultaneously. Thymic carcinoid tumors, which are recognized as one of the causes of death for patients with MEN 1, are uncommon and their natural history has barely been investigated.
Key Words: carcinoid tumor, MEN 1 gene, multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1
