    Paragangliomas are tumors originated from non-chromaffin paranganglia cells derived from the neural crest. These highly vascular tumors are located in the region which extends from skull base to arcus aorta. Head and neck paragangliomas have rare occurrence constituting 0.012% of all the body...

    Germline mutations in the RET, SDHA, SDHAF2, SDHB, SDHC, SDHD, MAX, TMEM127, NF1 or VHL genes are identified in about 30% of patients with pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma and somatic mutations in RET, VHL or MAX genes are reported in 17% of sporadic tumors. In the present study, using mutation...

    Experimental and observational evidence suggests that chronic hypoxic stimulation can induce parasympathetic paraganglioma. This is emphasized by the identification of germline mutations in genes of the mitochondrial succinate dehydrogenase enzyme complex II in hereditary paraganglioma. Because...
