Recent studies have revealed gene mutations in the succinate dehydrogenase family (SDHA, SDHB
, SDHC and SDHD) as associated with pheochromocytoma, increasing the estimates to about 35% of cases having a genetic/hereditary basis.

These provisions are primarily in the ERA to protect workers when an employer sells a business; they are not to be used as a pawn in the contracting process to support the transfer of business by an agency such as SDHB
from one employer to another.
Such tumors lack mutations in KIT and PDGFRA, although a subset of pediatric patients with GIST have germline mutations in SDHB
or SDHC, similar to patients with Carney-Stratakis syndrome.

All other genetic tests were not clearly identified as high priority (MET, FH, FLCN, TSC1, TSC2, SDHD, SDHC, SDHB

Large size is also a risk factor and together with extraadrenal location accounts for the high risk of malignancy associated with mutations of the SDHB
Both types of tumors are associated with conditions that are inherited in an autosomally dominant manner, such as: multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2),  which is due to a mutation in the RET  (ret proto-oncogene) protooncogene; von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL), which is due to a mutation in the VHL (von Hippel-Lindau tumor suppressor) gene; neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), caused by mutation in the NF1 (neurofibromin 1) gene; and mutations in succinate dehydrogenase (SDH) subunits B, C, and D, which are encoded by the SDHB
[succinate dehydrogenase complex, subunit B, iron sulfur (Ip)], SDHC (succinate dehydrogenase complex, subunit C, integral membrane protein, 15kDa), and SDHD (succinate dehydrogenase complex, subunit D, integral membrane protein) genes.
There is some evidence that tumors in patients with SDHB
mutations are characterized by norepinephrine and dopamine production (18), but that evidence is based largely on measurements of the plasma catecholamines.
