1.

Paraganglioma

A rare, usually benign tumor that develops from cells of the paraganglia. Paraganglia are a collection of cells that came from embryonic nervous tissue, and are found near the adrenal glands and some blood vessels and nerves. Paragangliomas that develop in the adrenal gland are called pheochromocytomas. Those that develop outside of the adrenal glands near blood vessels or nerves are called glomus tumors or chemodectomas. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
10571
Concept ID:
C0030421
Neoplastic Process
2.

Carotid body paraganglioma

A usually benign neoplasm originating in the chemoreceptor tissue of the cartodi body, glomus jugulare, glomus tympanicum, aortic bodies, or the female genital tract. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
2853
Concept ID:
C0007279
Neoplastic Process
3.

Neuroendocrine neoplasm

Tumors whose cells possess secretory granules and originate from the neuroectoderm, i.e., the cells of the ectoblast or epiblast that program the neuroendocrine system. Common properties across most neuroendocrine tumors include ectopic hormone production (often via APUD CELLS), the presence of tumor-associated antigens, and isozyme composition. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
64652
Concept ID:
C0206754
Neoplastic Process
4.

Neuroectodermal neoplasm

A neoplasm arising in the neuroectoderm, the portion of the ectoderm of the early embryo that gives rise to the central and peripheral nervous systems, including some glial cells. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
60072
Concept ID:
C0206093
Neoplastic Process
5.

Embryonal neoplasm

new abnormal embryonic tissue that grows by excessive cellular division and proliferation more rapidly than normal and continues to grow after the stimuli that initiated the new growth cease. [from CRISP]

MedGen UID:
45034
Concept ID:
C0027654
Neoplastic Process
6.

Nervous tissue neoplasm

A neoplasm derived from nervous tissue (not necessarity a neoplasm located in the nervous system). [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
14324
Concept ID:
C0027665
Neoplastic Process
7.

Chemodectoma

A usually benign neoplasm originating in the chemoreceptor tissue of the cartodi body, glomus jugulare, glomus tympanicum, aortic bodies, or the female genital tract. [from HPO]
