VEGA, Jorge et al. Carney triad: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2017, vol.145, n.4, pp.533-537. ISSN 0034-9887.

Carney described a disorder characterized by the presence of several uncommon tumors which were pulmonary chondromas, gastric sarcomas and extra-adrenal paragangliomas. We report a 14 year-old girl in whom multiple gastric tumors were discovered during a study of an iron deficiency anemia and was subjected to a partial gastrectomy. At 25 years of age, she developed several pulmonary chondromas and at 33 years, a mediastinal tumor with features of an extra-adrenal paraganglioma was found. At 35 years of age, a total gastrectomy was performed to remove a gastrointestinal stromal tumor with excision of peritoneal and lymph node metastasis. One year later, the patient died due to liver failure secondary to liver metastases.

Keywords : Carney Complex; Chondroma; Leiomyosarcoma; Paraganglioma.
