This chapter considers the clinical and molecular features of von Hippel–Lindau (VHL) disease (OMIM 193300) and mutations in succinate dehydrogenase subunit genes (SDHB (OMIM 115310), SDHC (OMIM 605373), and SDHD (OMIM 168000)). Both disorders are important causes of phaeochromocytoma and, in addition to having overlapping clinical phenotypes, also share some similarities in mechanisms of tumourigenesis.
