CONCLUSIONS: Imaging, symptomatic and laboratory response to multimodal treatment including high dose 131 I-MIBG were achieved on long-term follow up in metastatic pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma. Imaging response at 3-6 months was prognostic. PMID: 31614368 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionPheochromocytomas is a rare disease which may lead to a life-threathening hypertension as a result of elevated cathecolamine production. Initial recognition and appropriate management of pheochromocytomas are important. Preoperative management to normalize blood pressure followed by tumor removal has proved to be the ideal choice for good prognosis. Multidisciplinary team during preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative are required for successful outcome.
AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe present paper will review the results of experimental and clinical studies aimed at defining the functional behavior of the central and peripheral nervous system in adrenal pheochromocytoma.Recent FindingsThe contribution of sympathetic neural influences to the development of high blood pressure values in pheochromocytoma is complex. Studies performed in experimental animal models have shown that hypertension and the concomitant high circulating levels of catecholamines can lead to inhibition of central sympathetic neural outflow by reflex mechanisms and direct stimulation of central adrenergic...
CONCLUSIONS: Due to extreme rarity of pheochromocytoma in pregnancy, its impact on the mother and the fetus remains poorly understood. Official guidelines for treatment are not established, which, combined with the complex nature of the disease itself, demands a multidisciplinary and individualized approach.

Pheochromocytoma is a rare reason for hypertension. At least in younger people, an endocrinological workup of the etiology of hypertension is mandatory, as this case describes. If the pheochromocytomas are large enough, they can not only lead to hypertension but also cause direct damage to surrounding organs. AbstractPheochromocytoma is a rare reason for hypertension.

Hypertension is a common clinical complication in pregnancy, representing possible short-term and long-term risks of complications for both mothers and babies. Even if in a majority of cases hypertension is essential, possible secondary causes, which can be related to endocrine disorders, must be detected and correctly managed. This review focuses on the evaluation and the management of primary hyperaldosteronism, Cushing syndrome, and pheochromocytoma in pregnancy.
Hypertension is one of the commonest chronic diseases contributing to cardiovascular disease. Idiopathic (primary) hypertension accounts for approximately 85% of the diagnosed cases, and 15% of hypertensive patients have other contributing conditions leading to elevated blood pressure (secondary hypertension). Endocrine hypertension is a common secondary cause of hypertension. The most common causes of endocrine hypertension are excess production of mineralocorticoids (ie, primary hyperaldosteronism), glucocorticoids (Cushing syndrome), and catecholamines (pheochromocytoma). After biochemical confirmation of hormonal exces...
Authors: Farrugia FA, Charalampopoulos A Abstract Pheochromocytomas are rare tumors originating in the adrenal medulla. They may be sporadic or in the context of a hereditary syndrome. A considerable number of pheochromocytomas carry germline or somatic gene mutations, which are inherited in the autosomal dominant way. All patients should undergo genetic testing. Symptoms are due to catecholamines over production or to a mass effect. Diagnosis is confirmed by raised plasma or urine metanephrines or normetanephrines. Radiology assists in the tumor location and any local invasion or metastasis. All the patients shoul...

GR LakshminarayanaIndian Journal of Nephrology 2019 29(5):307-308 The pheochromocytomas are one of the rare and curable causes of secondary hypertension arising from adrenal medulla, commonly presenting withhypertension; either paroxysmal or persistent. Very rarely they may show cells belonging to more than one line of differentiation and are called as mixed or composite pheochromocytoma.
