Six pheochromocytoma susceptibility genes causing distinct syndromes have been identified; approximately one of three of all pheochromocytoma patients carry a predisposing germline mutation. When four major genes (VHL, RET, SDHB, SDHD) are analyzed in a clinical laboratory, costs are approximately $3,400 per patient. The aim of the study is to systematically obtain a robust algorithm to identify who should be genetically tested, and to determine the order in which genes should be tested.
