Answer

A complete medical history is important in the evaluation of apparent endocrine hyperfunction such as that seen in McCune-Albright syndrome (MAS), though it is often more important for ruling out other causes of such hyperfunction than for diagnosing MAS itself. Patients generally do not have a family history of MAS. The clinical presentation of MAS is highly variable, depending on which of the various potential components of the syndrome predominate.
