    Members of two different families were found to have the dysplastic naevus syndrome and coexistent endocrine abnormalities. The dysplastic naevus syndrome is probably inherited as an autosomal dominant trait and has been associated with other primary malignancies. This is the first time that it has been described in association with endocrine abnormalities.
