Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1) is an inherited autosomal dominant tumor syndrome, characterized by a heterogeneous association of neoplasms that originate from the parathyroid gland, endocrine pancreas, and anterior pituitary gland. A fifty three year old woman was admitted due to acromegalic features. She was diagnosed with acromegaly of the pituitary gland tumor determined by elevated insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and sellar magnetic resonance imaging. The patient was treated with a trans-sphenoidal adenomaectomy and post-operative radiotherapy. During follow up periods, hypercalcemia was detected and also intact parathyroid hormone (PTH) was elevated. On a neck ultrasound, computerized tomography, and parathyroid scan (201T1-99mTc), a parathyroid mass lesion was found in the left lower pole of the parathyroid gland. We report a case of MEN type 1, who was shown to have a pituitary adenoma and a parathyroid adenoma, with a review of literature..(Korean J Med 72:S256-S260, 2007) Key Words : Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1), Acromegaly, Parathyroid adenoma
Keywords: Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1), Acromegaly, Parathyroid adenoma
