Hereditary Pheochromocytoma-Paraganglioma Cancer Panel
Test Information: The Pheochromocytoma-Paraganglioma Panel uses next-generation sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis to simultaneously analyze selected genes associated with an increased risk for paragangliomas. Approximately 25% of all pheochromocytomas and extra-adrenal paragangliomas are believed to be caused by hereditary factors including mutations in SDHB, SDHC, SDHD, SDHAF2, RET, and NF1.
Test Details
Test Code: 9135
Special Notes: The panel includes exon by exon sequencing, indels and gross copy number analyses of 9 genes that associated with an increased risk of pheochromocytoma/paragangliomas.
Certain exons with no known gross deletion/duplication mutations may not be covered by deletion/duplication analysis.
