Cockayne syndrome, MEN1, and genomic variants: Exome sequencing is changing our view of the genetic landscape.

Pediatr Dermatol 2021 Jun 8. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Genetics, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA.

The availability of genomic sequencing for inherited diseases provides a more complete molecular basis for how an individual's genetic landscape influences clinical outcome. We describe a family where exome sequencing of a 3-year-old boy with clinical features of Cockayne syndrome (CS) confirmed the diagnosis of CS. He also had a mutation consistent with a pre-symptomatic second disease, multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1), each potentially affecting multiple organ systems, in addition to a poorly defined variant in fumarate hydratase (FH).

Spatiotemporal Patterns of Menin Localization in Developing Murine Brain: Co-Expression with the Elements of Cholinergic Synaptic Machinery.

Cells 2021 May 16;10(5). Epub 2021 May 16.

Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, University of Calgary, Calgary, AB T2N 4N1, Canada.

Menin, a product of (multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1) gene is an important regulator of tissue development and maintenance; its perturbation results in multiple tumors-primarily of the endocrine tissue. Despite its abundance in the developing central nervous system (CNS), our understanding of menin's role remains limited. Recently, we discovered menin to play an important role in cholinergic synaptogenesis in the CNS, whereas others have shown its involvement in learning, memory, depression and apoptosis. Read More

Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Hôpital de Bicêtre, Service d'Endocrinologie et des Maladies de la Reproduction, Centre de Référence des Maladies Rares de l'Hypophyse, Le Kremlin-Bicêtre, France.

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is a rare syndrome characterized by the co-occurrence of primary hyperparathyroidism, duodenopancreatic neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) and/or pituitary adenomas. MEN1 can predispose patients to other endocrine and non-endocrine tumours, such as cutaneous tumours, central nervous system tumours and breast cancer. Endocrine tumours in patients with MEN1 differ from sporadic tumours in that they have a younger age at onset, present as multiple tumours in the same organ and have a different clinical course.

The clinical aspects of pituitary tumour genetics.

Endocrine 2021 Mar 4;71(3):663-674. Epub 2021 Feb 4.

Centre for Endocrinology, William Harvey Research Institute, Barts and the London School of Medicine, Queen Mary University of London, London, UK.

Background: Pituitary tumours are usually benign and relatively common intracranial tumours, with under- and overexpression of pituitary hormones and local mass effects causing considerable morbidity and increased mortality. While most pituitary tumours are sporadic, around 5% of the cases arise in a familial setting, either isolated [familial isolated pituitary adenoma, related to AIP or X-linked acrogigantism], or in a syndromic disorder, such as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 or 4, Carney complex, McCune-Albright syndrome, phaeochromocytoma/paraganglioma with pituitary adenoma, DICER1 syndrome, Lynch syndrome, and USP8-related syndrome. Genetically determined pituitary tumours usually present at younger age and show aggressive behaviour, and are often resistant to different treatment modalities. Read More

Quality of life in Italian patients with Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN 1): results of an extensive survey.

Orphanet J Rare Dis 2021 01 6;16(1):16. Epub 2021 Jan 6.

Department of Experimental and Clinical Biomedical Sciences, University of Florence, Largo Palagi 1, 50139, Florence, Italy.

Background: MEN1 is a complex, rare, syndrome inherited in an autosomal dominant tract and characterized by the development of multiple neuroendocrine tumors, requiring lifelong surveillance and multiple medical and surgical therapies throughout the patient's life. For all these reasons, a diagnosis of MEN1 can be a psychological shock for the patient, as well as his/her relatives, more so than the diagnosis of a single tumor. In the last two decades, clinicians have started to consider the emotional, psychological, relational, and social aspects of their patients' lives. Read More

Incidental finding of MEN-1 syndrome during staging and follow-up of breast carcinoma.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Dec 21;13(12). Epub 2020 Dec 21.

Surgery, Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Norte EPE, Lisboa, Portugal.

Type 1 multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN-1) syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease, associated with germline mutations in the MEN-1 tumour suppressor gene (encoding the menin protein). Recent studies, through a better characterisation of the functions of the menin protein, have started to demonstrate how changes in this protein may be related to breast cancer. We present the case of a patient whose diagnosis of MEN-1 syndrome was made during treatment for a breast tumour-this diagnosis was obtained after finding multiple neoplastic lesions that fitted the MEN-1 syndrome spectrum, during the initial staging and subsequent follow-up of a breast tumour.
