Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PHEO/PGL) are chromaffin cell tumors that embryonically derive from the neural crest and functionally are capable of production, storage, metabolism, and secretion of catecholamines. While PHEOs arise from the adrenal medulla, PGLs can develop from both sympathetic and parasympathetic paraganglia. Sympathetic PGLs show diffuse distribution, frequently. The book is divided into six sections. The first three sections focus on the pathophysiology of the disease, showing anatomo- and histopathological aspects, experimental models and signaling pathways and programmed cell death related to pheochromocytoma. The fourth discusses some specific aspects of clinical presentation, with emphasis on clinical manifestations of headache and heart. The Cited by: 2. Reflecting the recent leaps in understanding this condition, Pheochromocytoma: Diagnosis, Localization, and Treatment provides a comprehensive update on the improvements in the diagnosis, localization, management and treatment of pheochromocytomas – providing you with the latest cutting edge science alongside best clinical practice. Written Cited by: Professor Karel Pacak put together the Pheochromocytoma Research Program at the NIH, one of the most prestigious and largest programs world-wide; published over 80 articles/book chapters on this topic. Introduced new biochemical and imaging approaches to this tumor, especially the use of 18F-fluorodopamine in localization of pheochromocytoma.

Pheochromocytomas are relatively uncommon tumors, with a prevalence of % to % in autopsy series. Patients with pheochromocytomas have a potentially curable cause of hypertension and, if undetected, pheochromocytomas present a high risk of morbidity and mortality especially during surgical procedures and pregnancy. Most pheochromocytomas are sporadic, but may be associated with other. Pheochromocytomas are rare catecholamine-secreting neuroendocrine tumors derived from chromaffin tissue of the adrenal medulla. Such tumors arising from the sympathetic ganglia of the thorax, abdomen, or pelvis are termed “paragangliomas” or “extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas.” The classic symptoms of these tumors are due to excess circulating levels of norepinephrine, epinephrine, or.

Pheochromocytoma is a rare tumor that usually starts in the cells of one of your adrenal glands. Although they are usually benign, pheochromocytomas often cause the adrenal gland to make too many hormones. This can lead to high blood pressure and cause symptoms such as. Pounding of the heart. Being extremely pale. Pheochromocytoma and paragangliomas are neuroendocrine tumors that present with symptoms of hypertension, tachycardia, sweating and anxiety among clinical goal of our program is to establish more effective diagnostic and localization techniques to ensure that no tumor goes undiagnosed as well as to establish new treatment options for this disease. Pheochromocytoma is a rare type of tumor that arises from certain cells known as chromaffin cells, which produce hormones necessary for the body to function properly. Most pheochromocytomas originate in one of the two adrenal glands located above the kidneys in the back of the upper abdomen. The treatment of malignant pheochromocytoma is mainly based on the use of nuclear medical techniques and selected chemotherapeutic approaches. This book is essential reading for clinicians and scientists in the fields of endocrinology as well as oncology, surgery and nuclear : $
