Assessment of the Growth Rate of Paragangliomas Related to SDHx Gene Mutations Using Computed Tomography. Abstract #1380

Introduction: SDHx mutations are associated with a lifelong risk of multifocal paragangliomas (PGL), so patients need regular follow-up examinations.
Aim(s): The aim of the study was to estimate the growth rate of PGL and analyze of its depending on the location base on computed tomography (CT) images.
Materials and methods: 27 patients with SDHx mutations (21 SDHD,6 SDHB,19 index case) who had at least two CT examinations were included to the study. We analyzed 58 PGL (23 abdominal, 1 pheochromocytoma, 9 thoracic, 25 head and neck). A mean percentage volume (in ml) increase within a month and the volume doubling time were estimated. The patients treated by radio-, chemio-, radionuclear therapy were excluded from the analysis. The PGL were divided depending on their localization into: head,neck (HN), thoracic (TH), abdomen,pelvis (AP).

#2972 Characteristics and Management of Paragangliomas, 10 Years Experience
Introduction: Paraganglioma (PG) is a rare extra-adrenal neuroendocrine tumor, with common sites of presentation being abdomen, and head and neck region. The majority of PGs appear to be sporadic. However, almost half of cases are associated with an inherited syndrome. The highest malignancy rates are seen in paragangliomas (PGs) associated with SDHB mutations, which are usually abdominal and secretory.

#2920 Mutation Spectrums Analysis of Colorectal Adenocarcinoma and Neuroendocrine Neoplasm Based on Same Genetic Background to Reveal Tumorigenesis
Introduction: The tumorigenesis of neuroendocrine neoplasm (NEN) are still ambiguous. The therapies of NENs in colon or rectum refer to adenocarcinomas (AC) when tumor metastasis, but the response was unsatisfactory which inspired us to explore the mutation difference.

#838 Succinate Dehydrogenase Subunit B (SDHB) Immunohistochemistry Should Not Replace Clinical Genetic Testing for SDHx Mutations in Patients with Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma
Introduction: Mutations in any of the subunits of the succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) complex predispose to PCC/PGL. Knowing the germline mutation is important for surveillance for recurrence, metastatic disease or more primary tumors and for screening affected family members. Expression of SDHB protein by immunohistochemistry (IHC) has been proposed as a surrogate marker for SDHx mutation status, with absent or decreased expression of SDHB suggesting the presence of a germline SDHB mutation or disruption of the SDH complex by mutation in another subunit.
