6. MEN syndromes


MEN1 and MEN2 are rare inherited cancer syndromes which express a variety of endocrine and nonendocrine tumors. The improved knowledge of molecular and clinical physiopathology ofMEN syndromes, together with the availability of genetic testing, have led to earlier detection and intervention,with consequent reduction ofmortality andmorbidity forMEN-associated tumors. Genetic testing has gained a key role in the detection of asymptomatic patients harbouring mutations responsible for these syndrome, and allows institution of early and tailored intervention with a positive impact on the course of disease.
