Abstract

Functional phaeochromocytoma and paraganglioma are rare in children and adolescents. We report a 12-year-old male with bilateral phaeochromocytoma in whom germ line testing identified a novel mutation in the von Hippel Lindau gene. Early age of onset, bilateral phaeochromocytoma and other clinical features should prompt germ line DNA testing for mutations in genes associated with familial phaeochromocytoma and paraganglioma syndromes.
