Acute myocardial infarction as the first manifestation of paraganglioma
Paragangliomas (PGLs) are extra-adrenal neuroendocrine tumors, classified as sympathetic or parasympathetic according to their origin in the paraganglia of the autonomic nervous system. Sympathetic PGLs are mostly functional, presenting in a variable and non-specific way. We report a case of PGL, which was diagnosed further to an investigation of acute myocardial infarction in a postpartum woman, highlighting that the absence of typical symptoms may delay the diagnosis.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
