The Story of Discovery of the Carney Triad

GSI asked Dr. Aidan Carney to describe how he came to identify the syndrome of tumors now known as Carney triad, which affects young patients. Dr. Carney, a pathologist, now retired but continuing his research activities, is an emeritus member of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. His special interests during his career have included endocrine and gastrointestinal pathology, with a particular interest in syndromes.

The Story of Discovery of the Carney Triad

Sometimes it is strange how events turn out. Dr. E.G. Harrison, a colleague in pathology at Mayo Clinic, died unexpectedly on July 4th 1974. One of his interests was a tumor called paraganglioma. Paragangliomas arise from little groups of cells (minute organs) located in certain areas of the body, the adrenal gland, and the carotid and vagal bodies in the neck, for example. They are usually benign. Sometimes, they secrete a chemical (adrenaline) that causes high blood pressure.
