Answer

Because MAS is a multisystemic condition with a host of variable presentations, management often is challenging and requires a multidisciplinary approach. For most physicians who are not endocrinologists, the crucial points in management are recognition of MAS and referral of the patient to an endocrinologist who is experienced in its management. The endocrinologist, in turn, offers other referrals as indicated (eg, neurosurgeon) (see Treatment).
