The Hereditary Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma Syndrome (hPPGL)…A Misnomer With Consequences
Dr. Annes will review the hPPGL Syndrome with particular focus on the underlying genetics basis and related tumor risks. He will review the benefits/limitations of genetic testing and pre-symptomatic screening, including his personal experience directing Stanford’s Hereditary Neuroendocrine Neoplasia Clinic. Finally, he will discuss opportunities for advancing hPPGL care and ongoing research.
