(Ivanhoe Newswire) "“ Variations of a gene are associated with a type of tumor that forms within the adrenal gland, and were found in an age group uncommon for these types of tumors. Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas are types of tumors. Pheochromocytomas form in the adrenal gland causing it to make too much adrenaline. Pheochromocytomas can cause high blood pressure, pounding headaches, heart palpitations, flushing of the face, nausea, and vomiting. Paragangliomas are rare, usually...

Analysis has identified variations of a gene that are associated with a type of tumor that forms within the adrenal gland, according a study in the December 15 issue of JAMA. The age group in which these variations were found are frequently excluded from genetic screening models for this type of tumor. Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas are types of tumors. Pheochromocytomas form in the adrenal gland (gland located above the kidney) causing it to make too much adrenaline. Pheochromocytomas...

 University of Utah researchers and their colleagues have identified the gene that is mutated in a hereditary form of a rare neuroendocrine tumor called paraganglioma (PGL). The gene, called hSDH5, is required for activation of an enzyme complex that plays a critical role in the chemical reactions that take place within cells to convert biochemical energy into usable energy. This study will be published in the journal Science, to be released online in Science Express on July 23,...

By Tischler, Arthur S * Context.-Advances in genetics and gene expression profiling have led to new ways of thinking about the pathobiology of pheochromocytoma and extra-adrenal paraganglioma. These developments are concurrent with the publication and dissemination of the 2004 World Health Organization bluebook on pathology and genetics of endocrine tumors. Objective.-To summarize new information required by pathologists for effective participation in patient management and research. Data...

By Franks, Teri J Galvin, Jeffrey R * Context.-Tumors with neuroendocrine morphology are a distinct subset of lung neoplasms sharing characteristic histologic, immunohistochemical, ultrastructural, and molecular features. Objective.-To review the current histologic classification and the diagnostic criteria for the major categories of neuroendocrine tumors of the lung. Data Sources.-Published classification systems from the World Health Organization and pertinent peer-reviewed articles...

By Borczuk, Alain C * Context.-Benign tumors and tumorlike conditions of the lung are encountered in the pathologic evaluation of asymptomatic and symptomatic lung nodules. Since many of these lesions are uncommon, they can be diagnostically challenging. Objective.-To review the current classification of benign lung tumors, with emphasis on histopathology and useful ancillary studies. Data Sources.-The current World Health Organization classification system for lung neoplasms and review...

By Takei, Hidehiro; Bhattacharjee, Meenakshi B; Rivera, Andreana; Dancer, Yeongju; Powell, Suzanne Z * Context.-Immunohistochemistry (IHC) has become an important tool in the diagnosis of brain tumors. Objective.-To review the latest advances in IHC in the diagnostic neuro-oncologic pathology. Data Sources.-Original research and review articles and the authors' personal experiences. Data Synthesis.-We review the features of new, useful or potentially applicable marker antibodies as well...
