AbstractThe multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) type 1 and McCune-Albright syndromes share many clinical and biochemical characteristics. This report documents for the first time the occurrence and natural history of the McCune-Albright syndrome in a female with a strong family history of MEN type 1. There may be a functional link between both of these conditions, and there is a need to look for G-protein mutations as a mechanism for disease in MEN type 1.
