Type-2A multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN-2A) syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant inheritance disease characterized by the presence of pheochromocytoma (PHEO), medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC), and parathyroid adenoma or hyperplasia. In patients with MEN-2A, PHEO is frequently asymptomatic and bilateral, and MTC is multifocal, usually representing the first manifestation of the disease.
