Multimodality appearance of multiple endocrine neoplasia typ
Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 is a rare autosomal dominant disorder classically characterized by a predisposition to tumors of the parathyroid glands, anterior pituitary, and enteropancreatic endocrine cells.

Published in the Journal of Radiology Case Reports, the authors present the clinical details of a patient with diarrhea, nephrolithiasis, erectile dysfunction, and new onset abdominal pain, as well as a discussion of the etiology, pathophysiology, and classical imaging findings of this condition.

A 35-year-old male presented with severe left flank pain. A CT of the abdomen and pelvis revealed a 10-mm obstructing calculus in the left ureter. He was symptomatically treated and discharged, but due to worsening pain, he presented to our Emergency Department. On further questioning, he described a 10 year history of renal stones, for which he has received treatment at an outside state.

He underwent a cystoscopy with a left ureteric stent placement without complications. Prior to being discharged, he described a palpable left testicular lump that he has noticed for the past year. MRI revealed an 18.6-mm well-circumscribed, enhancing mass within the tail of the left epididymis, suggestive of an adenomatoid tumor.
