VELASQUEZ GOMEZ, Lina Maria et al. Incomplete Carney's triad. rev. colomb. cir. [online]. 2015, vol.30, n.4, pp.311-316. ISSN 2011-7582.

Carney's triad is a rare condition with multimodal presentations, which affects mainly females and remains asymptomatic in most cases. It is characterized by the appearance of tumors, usually benign, in lung, adrenal, and stomach, but it can also affect other organs like the esophagus. Treatment of these lesions is primarily surgical. The objective of this paper is to review the current literature and to report a case of an incomplete Carney's triad managed surgically with excellent postoperative results.

Keywords : Carney syndrome; lung neoplasms; chondroma; paraganglioma; extra-adrenal; gastrointestinal stromal tumors.
