Management of Hereditary Endocrine Syndromes (C)
This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Meet ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements for Cancer. Learn more about ACS Accreditation/Verification Requirements.
The importance of recognizing a possible hereditary endocrine syndrome at the time of initial diagnosis is key to the appropriate management of these relatively rare disorders, which include multiple endocrine neoplasia I, multiple endocrine neoplasia II, pheochromocytoma paraganglioma syndromes, hereditary forms of hypercalcemia, and familial forms of thyroid cancer. This panel session will highlight pertinent specific points related to the diagnosis and work-up (including genetic counseling and testing), management strategies, surgical approaches, and follow-up of these diverse clinical syndromes.
