Summary of "Epidemiology and Prognosis of Pheochromocytoma/Paraganglioma in Korea: A Nationwide Study Based on the National Health Insurance Service."

Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas (PPGLs) are rare endocrine tumors originating from chromaffin cells. PPGLs are associated with a high mortality rate and several complications. To date, no epidemiological studies have been conducted on PPGLs in Asia. This study aimed to investigate the epidemiology and prognosis of PPGLs in Korea using nationwide data.

A Brief Overview of the Epidemiology of Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma in Korea.

Long-term outcomes of 125 patients with metastatic pheochromocytoma or paraganglioma treated with 131I-mIBG.

Prognosis of metastatic pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma following I-131-MIBG is incompletely characterized due to small samples and shorter follow-up in these rare, often indolent tumors.
