Drawing shows parts of the body affected by MEN2 syndrome, including the thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, and adrenal gland. There are also two insets: one showing the back view of the thyroid gland with the four pea-sized parathyroid glands, and the other showing the inner part of the adrenal gland called the adrenal medulla.
Multiple endocrine neoplasia 2 (MEN2) syndrome is a rare, inherited disorder that affects the endocrine glands or organs. MEN2 syndrome usually causes thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, or adrenal gland tumors. The tumors may be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer).
