We report the case of a 59-year-old woman who underwent right adrenal pheochromocytoma resection 14 years ago and remained asymptomatic until recently when she complained of palpitation, perspiration, and hypertension. 18F-FDG PET/CT revealed a left adnexal mass with increased activity, which was later surgically removed and pathologically confirmed as ovarian metastasis of pheochromocytoma.

Authors: Mohamed Zainuddin N, Sthaneshwar P, Ratnasingam J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Phaeochromocytoma may present with uncontrolled hypertension leading to haemorrhagic stroke (HS), ischaemic stroke (IS) and transient ischaemic attack (TIA). False elevation in the levels of CATS/ METS has been reported in acute cerebrovascular disease. Our aim was to analyse the frequency and pattern of elevations of CATS/METS in patients with acute cerebrovascular disease and to determine associated factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 112 samples of CATS/ METS received by the laboratory over a two-ye...

Conclusion: We report a family with a new clinical phenotype of germline pathogenic variants in MAX who developed both PCC and GN. Germline pathogenic variants in MAX may contribute to the development of GN. Our findings suggest that it is not just paternally inherited MAX variants that can cause tumors.

Objective: Structural abnormalities in resistance arteries are a hallmark of patients with hypertension. In hypertensive patients with pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma (PPGL), it is still a matter of debate whether structural vascular changes are because of elevated blood pressure (BP) or to toxic effects of elevated circulating catecholamines. Hence, the aim of our study was to assess whether catecholamine excess and/or elevated BP affect the structure of small retinal arteries in patients with catecholamine-producing tumors. Methods: The study included 27 patients with PPGL and 27 hypertensive patients. All patient...

Phaeochromocytoma and paraganglioma (PPGL) are chromaffin cell tumours that require timely diagnosis because of their potentially serious cardiovascular and sometimes life- threatening sequelae. Tremendous progress in biochemical testing, imaging, genetics and pathophysiological understanding of the tumours has far-reaching implications for physicians dealing with hypertension and more importantly affected patients. Because hypertension is a classical clinical clue for PPGL, physicians involved in hypertension care are those who are often the first to consider this diagnosis. However, there have been profound changes in ho...

Abstract Pheochromocytoma originates from pheochromogranulocytes. The clinical manifestations vary greatly among individuals and easy to be misdiagnosed. Once misdiagnosed, sudden malignant hypertension, heart failure or cerebral hemorrhage cause death in severe patients. In this case report, we describe a 47-year-old female patient with pheochromocytoma misdiagnosed as a stromal tumor who developed sudden cardiac arrest when pneumoperitoneum was established after anesthesia and then developed acute catecholamine cardiomyopathy. This case served as a reminder to pay more attention to the possibility of misdiagnosi...

This study examined 101 clinical drugs and laboratory compounds to build a comprehe nsive understanding of α1‐adrenoceptor subtype affinity and selectivity. [3H]prazosin whole‐cell binding was conducted in CHO cells stably expressing either the full‐length human α1A, α1B, or α1D‐adrenoceptor. As expected, doxazosin was a high‐affinity nonselective α1‐antagonist alt hough other compounds (eg, cyclazosin, 3‐MPPI, and ARC239) had higher affinities. Several highly α1A‐selective antagonists were confirmed (SNAP5089 had over 1700‐fold α1A selectivity). Despite all compo...
