Introduction: Pheochromocytomas (PCs) and paragangliomas are rare tumours occurring in about 0.6 cases per 100,000 person-years. Biochemically silent PCs with normal catecholamine levels due to lack of catecholamine secretion or subtle secretion within the established normal levels are even rarer. Up to date, biochemically silent PCs are poorly investigated.Aim: To assess the pre-, peri- and post-operative characteristics of patients with biochemically s...
