Abstract

Background/Purpose: Etiopathogenesis, management, and outcome of pediatric pheochromocytoma (PHEO) still is obscure because of limited number of cases. Therefore, a retrospective clinical study was performed to present an updated picture of the entire spectrum of pediatric PHEO based on the authors' 30 years' experience consisting of one of the largest noncollected series treated in a single medical center.
