We have previously described a kindred with hereditary medullary thyroid carcinoma and pheochromocytoma (multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2A [MEN 2A]) with localized pruritic cutaneous manifestations present only in affected members. Although the initial skin biopsies reported did not show amyloidosis, subsequent skin biopsy results reported here have demonstrated amyloid which stained for keratin but not for calcitonin and established that this family represents an association of a rare autosomal dominant form of lichen amyloidosis with MEN 2A.
