Abstract

With advancement in genetic studies, familial phaeochromocytoma (PCC) and paraganglioma (PGL) are increasingly being recognized. Characteristically, correlations exist between genotypes and clinical and biochemical phenotypes. We report a phaeochromocytoma in a young patient with intriguing family histories, raising the possibility of his being a familial case.
