Özet

Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a hereditary disease and carries increased risk of both benign and malignant tumor development. Pheochromocytoma or hyperparathyroidism have been reported to be associated with NF type I (NF1). However, the coexistance of pheochromocytorna and parathyroid adenoma in a patient with NF1 is very rare. We report a case of a 37-year-old mate with NF1, bilateral pheochromocytorna and parathyroid adenoma. This association sould be kept in mind in patients with NF1 in initial evaluation as well as during follow-up.
