What is the Role for Genetic Counseling with MEN1 Gene Testing?
ATRX, DAXX and MEN1 mutations have better prognosis.
Diagnosis of MEN syndromes is generally based on clinical findings, but demonstration of MEN-associated variations in MEN1 [7] (MEN-1) or RET (MEN-2) by direct DNA sequencing can confirm the diagnosis (4,28).

Type-II ECL-cell NETs occur in patients with MEN1 or Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
While the underlying mechanism of this finding is largely unknown, this phenomenon is attributed to the status of pseudohypoxia resulting in HIF-1[alpha] increase in the setting of VHL disease, (15) since positivity for inhibin has not been observed in other clear cell NETs associated with MEN1 syndrome.
