Paraganglioma of the tongue with SDHB gene mutation in a patient with Graves' disease
Clin Case Rep. 2019 ;7(4):726-730.
We report a case of an apparently sporadic paraganglioma of the tongue with a germ-line mutation in a female patient with asymptomatic Graves' disease. The tongue is an unusual primary location. Genetic testing is mandatory in all cases. Thyroid gland dysfunction and autoimmune phenomena could be associated with some paragangliomas.
The authors want to thank Mr. Jose Eduardo Matos (photog-rapher) for his technical assistance.
