Pheochromocytomas and Paragangliomas, Genetically Diverse and Minimalist, All at Once!

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

7 Scopus citations


Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas are infrequent, genetically heterogeneous neuroendocrine tumors. In this issue of Cancer Cell, Fishbein et al. report novel driver genes, pathogenic mechanisms, and markers of malignancy. Notably, the new findings support the long-held view that these tumors distinctively arise from a single driver event, either inherited or acquired.
