Pheochromocytoma - Paraganglioma

Paragangliomas are neuroendocrine tumors of the autonomic nervous system. Sympathetic paragangliomas generally secrete catecholamines (epinephrine, norepinephrine) and are usually located in the retroperitoneal space, abdomen, or thorax; paragangliomas of the adrenal medulla are commonly called pheochromocytomas. Parasympathetic paragangliomas are usually in the head and neck region and are generally nonsecreting.
