Dr. Carney 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.

Note that Dr. Carney's name has also been attached to a different and unrelated disorder known as Carney complex or 'complex of spotty skin pigmentation, myxomas, endocrine overactivity and schwannomas.' Therefore, if you search PubMed, do not confuse the two similarly named syndromes.
The following quote is from the concluding paragraph of an editorial summary about Dr. Carney and his dedicated quest to understand the triad by fellow pathologist Henry D. Appelman, M.D. (Mayo Clinic Proceedings, 1999, 74:638-639).
...
"Aidan Carney, with intelligence and perseverance, recognized that not all gastrointestinal stromal tumors are the same and that there is more to them than simply determining the cell types within them or finding features that distinguish the benign ones from the malignant. He observed that a small group of them occurred in a specific clinical setting and that they had a peculiar clinical behavior. He scoured the literature for similar cases and tracked down the authors of most such reports with almost religious fervor to see if those cases were like his. The Aidan Carneys of this world are insightful and creative, and they force those of us who are neither to keep our eyes open, observe things carefully, and question dogma frequently. The Carney triad is not so much a medical issue as it is a medical lesson."
