SDHB mutation carriers are predisposed to developing paragangliomas (PGLs). The objective of this study was to assess genotype–phenotype correlations of a Dutch cohort of SDHB mutation carriers and assess potential differences in clinical phenotypes related to specific SDHB founder mutations. Forty-seven consecutive SDHB mutation carriers were included. Initial screening consisted of measurement of 24 h urinary excretion of catecholamines and their metabolites in duplicate, repeated annually if… CONTINUE READING
