Klinische und molekulargenetische Charakterisierung von Phäochromozytomen und Paragangliomen

Phäochromozytome können sporadisch oder im Rahmen von hereditären Syndromen mit Mutationen verschiedener Gene vorkommen. Solche Mutationen wurden auf dem RET-Gen für das MEN 2-Syndrom, auf dem VHL-Gen für das VHL-Syndrom, auf dem NF1-Gen für das NF1-Syndrom, sowie im Bereich des SDHB-, SDHC- und SDH...
