Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1/type 2

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1/type 2

Type 1 multiple endocrine neoplasias is a hereditary syndrome characterized by hyperplasia or sometimes parathyroid adenomas and tumours of islets of Langerhans and/or pituitary tumours. It is also possible the appearance of duodenal gastrinomas, carcinoid tumours of the derivatives of the anterior intestine, benign adrenal adenomas and lipomas. The clinical presentation most often includes hyperparathyroidism and asymptomatic hypercalcemia. Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 is a hereditary syndrome including medullary thyroid cancer, pheochromocytoma, hyperparathyroidism or adenomas (which cause hyperparathyroidism) and sometimes cutaneous amyloidosis. The clinical picture depends on the defeat of specific glands. The doctor may suspect the presence of the disease during the examination. To clarify the diagnosis, special equipment and techniques are used.

In the Israeli clinic Tel Aviv Medical Clinic, a real team of professionals has been working, which has been treating pathology for more than 10 years. Our doctors have all the necessary knowledge and skills. The wards of the department are equipped with everything necessary for the speedy recovery of patients. We use original preparations and modern equipment. It is worth noting that we set tariffs at the state level.

Diagnostics

In order to make a correct diagnosis, the doctor uses the following diagnostic methods: 

  • examination and medical history;
  • blood test;
  • conducting a genetic test;
  • determination of the level of hormones;
  • MRI or CT;
  • Ultrasound biopsy.

Then, based on the data obtained, the doctor selects the optimal treatment regimen taking into account the peculiarities of the development of pathology and the general condition of the patient. 

Treatment

In our clinic, a combined treatment regimen is used, which involves the removal of education and the conduct of drug therapy. It is worth noting that the surgeons in our department use minimally invasive methods of surgical intervention that are safe and effective for the patient. In inoperable cases and if the operation is not radical, octreotide (a synthetic analogue of somatostatin) and chemotherapeutic drugs are prescribed. Thus, the doctors of our clinic manage to help even in the most difficult situations.
