Abstract
We report the clinical outcomes of eleven patients with succinate dehydrogenase subunit A (SDHA) germline mutations from three UK tertiary referral centres to highlight a more diverse and expanding clinical spectrum of associated phenotypes. We suggest that SDHA paraganglioma related disease is not a low risk condition as first described. Of our six index cases, two developed metastatic disease and a further one had local vascular invasion. One patient developed multiple metachronous disease. Therefore, we believe these patients, like those with SDHB & SDHD mutations, should be part of a surveillance programme.
