To report the clinical, hormonal, and genetic features of a female with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) with multiple uterine leiomyomas. The study was conducted at a tertiary care endocrinology unit. A 27-year-old female was diagnosed with prolactinoma, primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), and multiple uterine leiomyomas. In view of prolactinoma and PHPT, a clinical diagnosis of MEN1 syndrome was made. She also had multiple uterine leiomyomas for which myomectomy was done. Genetic analysis revealed a novel mutation c.1763C>T, p.S588L of MEN1 gene. The association of uterine leiomyomas with MEN1 is exceptionally rare. This is the first report of multiple uterine leiomyomas in a patient with MEN1 from our country and the first report of this mutation in the MEN1 gene in the world. We conclude that in the presence of multiple uterine leiomyomas and endocrine tumor, clinical examination and laboratory evaluation may uncover the diagnosis of MEN1 syndrome in these patients.
