The genetic basis for familial phaeochromocytoma is unknown in many cases. Since the disorder has been reported in some cases of familial head and neck paraganglioma, which is caused by a mutation in the gene encoding succinate dehydrogenase complex subunit D (SDHD), we investigated this gene in kindreds with familial phaeochromocytoma. A germline SDHD frameshift mutation was identified in a two-generation family consisting of four children with phaeochromocytoma, but somatic mutations were not… CONTINUE READING
