The high incidence of early aggressive tumours associated with MEN2B (11,34) warrants an aggressive surgical approach with early prophylactic thyroidectomy in gene carriers (<1 year).
In MEN2B the 918 mutation alters the substrate specificity of RET tyrosine kinase and induces a different set of signalling pathways to those in MEN2A.
For MEN2B, missense mutations in codon 883 of exon 15 or codon 918 of exon 16 account for ~5% and 95% of cases, respectively (1, 8,9).
