Pheochromocytoma

  • K. A. Meurer

Abstract

Pheochromocytomas are catecholamine-producing tumors arising in the chromaffin cells which are of neural crest origin. They can therefore be located in the adrenal medulla as well as in the sympathetic ganglia. In the latter case, they are also called paragangliomas. The paragangliomas have been classified further by various authors according to their anatomic location and microscopic structure.43 In general, however, every catecholamine-producing tumor is classified as a pheochromocytoma, regardless of its location.
