|Title:||Pheochromocytoma with negative metanephrines: a rarity and the significance of dopamine secreting tumors.|
Putra, Lydia Johns
|Publication Title:||Urology Case Reports|
|Abstract:||We describe a case of a 25-year-old female with a dopamine secreting PPGL diagnosed retrospectively with biochemical analysis. This finding resulted in change in approach to investigation and management, given their important clinical implications. There are important differences in management of dopamine secreting PPGL compared to classical noradrenaline and adrenaline-secreting PPGL. This includes the risk of peri-operative cardiovascular collapse peri-operatively with alpha/beta blockade, risk of malignancy/recurrence, and associated genetic abnormalities.|
