What is the pattern of inheritance for Carney's Complex (AKA Carney's Syndrome)
Autosomal dominant
What are the clinical characteristics of Carney's Complex?
- Myxoid lesions: cardiac myxoma, skin angiomyxoma, myxoid fibroadenoma of breast

- Pigmented and calcifying lesions: spotty skin pigmentations, epithelioid blue nevus, pigmented nodular adrenocortical hyperplasia, psammomatous melanotic schwannoma, large cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor

- Endocrine hyperactivity: pituitary adenoma

-Others: chondroid hamartoma, thyroid carcinoma
