Abstract

Multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) is an uncommon genetic syndrome transmitted as an autosomal dominant condition characterized by multiple tumors or hyperplasia of neuroendocrine tissues. MEN type 2b (MEN2B) often has clinical signs of marfanoid facial appearance and mucosal neuromas of the head. This report describes the diagnosis of MEN2B in a previously undiagnosed 9 year old who presented for biopsy of an oral lesion.
