Yeah, I agree with you these syndrome names are really difficult to memorize and you have all the rights to inquire about them.

However, in USMLE they will not bring these names. When there are diseases that have two common names they usually mention them both. So they will say Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type I (Wermer syndrome).

Actually you reminded me of a very important distinction that we have to make when it comes to Wermer. You should not confuse it with WerNer syndrome which is a type of progeria.

If you need a mnemonic aid for MEN have a look here
