Introduction: Pheochromocytomas (PHEO) and paragangliomas (PGL) are rare catecholamine-secreting tumors. Some authors proposed that there is a positive linear relationship between tumor size and measurements of metanephrines and an absence of association with catecholamine levels.Objectives: To review and characterize patients diagnosed with PHEO and PGL in Garcia de Orta Hospital. To determine the relationship between tumor size and measurements of urin...

Background: The detection of thyroid incidental uptake of radiopharmaceuticals has been increasing. Those detected by 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET) have been associated with a significant risk of malignancy (8–64%). Gallium-68 (Ga-68) labelled peptides are now the standard imaging modality for staging neuroendocrine tumours (NET). Its high sensitivity has increased the discovery of incidental findings. The aim of this study was to ev...
