Abstract

We report a patient who initially presented with an abdominal paraganglioma and subsequently metastatic papillary cell renal cancer. Genetic analysis revealed a 141 G>A (exon 2) Trp47X mutation within the succinate dehydrogenase B gene. Treatment with the novel multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor sunitinib resulted in a sustained partial response and reduced the level of the angiogenic marker PIGF.
