Carney complex in association with atrial myxoma: Case report [Atriyal Miksoma ile Birlikte Carney Kompleksi]
Carney complex is an autosomal dominantly inherited disease complex including myxomas, pigmented skin lesions and endocrine neoplasias. It was first defined by J. Aidan Carney in 1985. Myxomas can be observed in the heart, skin and breast. Familial myxomas were seen at younger ages than sporadic forms. The most common endocrine gland manifestations acromegaly, thyroid and testicular tumors, and adrenocorticotropic hormone-independent Cushing's syndrome. A cardiac myxoma requires surgical removal. In this study, we present a case of left atrial myx-oma with Carney syndrome who was early diagnosed and successfully treated with surgery. Copyright © 2013 by Türkiye Klinikleri.
