Report: Sample Wed / Sat by 9 am; Report Fri / Tue
Usage: Metanephrines and Normetanephrines are elevated in catecholamine secreting tumors like Pheochromocytomas and in tumors derived from neural crest cells like Paraganglioma and Neuroblastoma. Measurement of plasma free metanephrines appears to be the best test for excluding Pheochromocytoma as the test’s sensitivity is approximately 96-99 % and offers specificity between 80-100 %. Tumoral production of 3-methoxytyramine is associated with presence of an underlying SDHB mutation and may be a biomarker of malignancy. Following patients with or without hypertension should be investigated for Pheochromocytoma: • Previous history of tumor • Adrenal incidentaloma • Hereditary predisposition
