Adrenal and paraganglia tumors

Rare catecholamine-secreting tu-

mors may occur in the adrenal medul-

la (pheochromocytoma) and elsewhere

in the body (extra-adrenal paraganglio-

ma). About 90% of pheochromocyto-

mae are located in the adrenal glands.

While a few are cancerous, most are

benign – they do not spread beyond

their original location – although most

do continue to grow. Paragangliomae

have been found in the abdomen, chest,

neck and head; they may develop any-

where there are sympathetic nerve cells.

Depending on the location and type

of tumor, excess epinephrine, norepi-
