Introduction: P/P are rare tumors sporadically associated with familial disorders. In advanced/unresectable disease, no standard treatment has so far been well established. Recently a mutation of some genes (SDHB, SDHC, SDHD) involved in the pathogenesis of familial P/P was discovered. These mutations are often associated with an over-expression of HIF-1, which plays a central role in angiogenesis and cell proliferation. This pathway is known to be inhibited by some targeted therapies, such as sunitinib or sorafenib.
