Abstract

Successful treatment of the multiple endocrine neoplasia type III (MEN III) syndrome requires early diagnosis. It is highly possible that the patient's dentist may be the first practitioner with the opportunity to diagnose this potentially fatal syndrome. Additionally, patients with this syndrome having a pheochromocytoma and needing invasive dental treatment pose a life‐threatening dental management risk. This article presents a review of the MEN III syndrome and a case report on the surgical management of a MEN III patient with a pheochromocytoma.
