Multiple endocrine neoplasia, type 2B is an autosomal dominant
hamartoneoplastic syndrome which is caused by a heterozygous mutation in the RET
gene located on chromosome 10g11. It is characterized by the development of multiple
mucosal neuromas. Bumps which are glistening in appearance form along the tongue,
lips, and lining of the mouth. An analysis of the physical characteristics of Abraham
Lincoln has led researchers to recently theorize that he had multiple endocrine
neoplasia, type 2B.
