Quick Reference

Tumours (glomus tumours) derived from paraganglia located throughout the body. Those in which the cells are chromaffin types have endocrine activity and are usually referred to as phaeochromocytomas. Familial paragangliomas-1 (PGL1) is caused by mutation in the SDHD gene, which encodes the small subunit of cytochrome B in succinate-ubiquinone oxidoreductase. PGL2 has been mapped to chromosome 11q13. PGL3 and PGL4 are a result of mutations in genes for other subunits of the oxidoreductase.
