They are chromaffin-containing neuroendocrine tumors of neural crest origin that contain catecholamine-secreting granules: they arise from either the adrenal medulla (phaeochromocytomas) or from extra-adrenal neural crest derivatives e.g. the sympathetic chain (paragangliomas). The term paraganglioma is also used for vascular head and neck tumors derived from parasympathetic tissue, which commonly… CONTINUE READING
