Journal: J. Clin. Endocrinol. Metab.. 2011 Sep;96(9):2779-85.

 

Accurate diagnosis of head and neck paragangliomas is often complicated by biochemical silence and lack of catecholamine-associated symptoms, making accurate anatomical and functional imaging techniques essential to the diagnostic process.

Expression of somatostatin receptors, dopamine D₂ receptors, noradrenaline transporters, and vesicular monoamine transporters in 52 pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas.
 

Author(s): Alexandru Saveanu, Mihaela Muresan, Catherine De Micco, David Taieb, Anne-Laure Germanetti, Frederic Sebag, Jean-François Henry, Laurent Brunaud, Alain Enjalbert, Georges Weryha, Anne Barlier

Journal:

 

While somatostatin receptors (sst), through somatostatin-radiolabeled analogs, are used, mainly in second line, in the diagnosis and treatment of pheochromocytomas (PCC) and paragangliomas (PGL), the clinical significance of dopamine receptor subtype 2 (D₂) in PCC/PGL is unknown. ...

Author(s): Carsten C Boedeker, Zoran Erlic, Stéphane Richard, Udo Kontny, Anne-Paule Gimenez-Roqueplo, Alberto Cascon, Mercedes Robledo, José M de Campos, Francien H van Nederveen, Ronald R de Krijger, Nelly Burnichon, José Gaal, Martin A Walter, Kirsten Reschke, Thorsten Wiech, Johannes Weber, Klaus Rückauer, Pierre Francois Plouin, Vincent Darrouzet, Sophie Giraud, Charis Eng, Hartmut P H Neumann

Journal: J. Clin. Endocrinol. Metab.. 2009 Jun;94(6):1938-44.

 

Head and neck paragangliomas (HNPs) occur as sporadic or familial entities, the latter mostly in association with germline mutations of the SDHB, SDHC, or SDHD (SDHx) genes. Heritable non-SDHx HNP might occur in von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL, VHL gene), multiple endocrine neoplasia ...
