ABSTRACT Objective: To report a case of carotid body paraganglioma occurring in conjunction with a succinate dehydrogenase complex subunit D (SDHD) gene mutation with comorbidities of multiple retroperitoneal paragangliomas and pheochromocytoma. This case emphasizes the importance of performing genetic analyses in all cases of paragangliomas with carotid body involvement, multifocal origin, or concurrent pheochromocytoma to identify potential hereditary tumor susceptibility. We also emphasize… CONTINUE READING
