While studying the uptake of iodine-123-metaiodobenzylguanidine ([123I]MIBG) in chemodectomas, we coincidentally detected catecholamine secreting tumors in 5 out of 14 patients. In three of these cases, a norepinephrine secreting abdominal paraganglioma was subsequently removed. One patient had a norepinephrine secreting chemodectoma and one had a dopamine secreting chemodectoma. Prior to [123I]MIBG imaging and urinary catecholamine measurements, endocrine activity was suspected in only one of… CONTINUE READING
