Answer

For genetic testing, TES/AACC/ESE recommendations are as follows:

  • Patients with PPGLs should be engaged in shared decision-making for genetic testing

  • Patients with paraganglioma should undergo testing of succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) mutations

  • Patients with metastatic disease should undergo testing for SDHB mutations

  • Genetic testing should include pre- and posttest genetic counseling
