Genotype – Phenotype Correlations and Timing of Prophylactic Thyroidectomy in Patients with Familial Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma Abstract #631

Introduction: Recommendations on the timing of prophylactic thyroidectomy (PTTE) in patients with familial medullary carcinoma (FMTC) are based on classification of RET mutations into four risk levels (ATA 2009).
Aim(s): To study the clinical course of FMTC patients with various RET mutations operated with a time delay against recommended timing.
Materials and methods: Retrospective analysis of clinical course in 42 RET mutation carriers from 12 FMTC and MEN 2A families.
