There is evidence to suggest that the plasticity of chromaffin cells declines during development, which may overlap or be the same as early stages of ageing |17, 18~.
Such measurements not only avoid the quality assurance problems associated with measurements of deconjugated metanephrines, but also offer theoretical advantages related to measurements of free metabolites formed within chromaffin cells and their tumor derivatives (18, 23).

Pheochromocytoma is a rare catecholamine secreting tumour which is of chromaffin cells of adrenal medulla (90%) or extra-adrenal sympathetic para-ganglia.
Pheochromocytomas are neoplasms arising from the catecholamine-producing, neural crest-derived chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla, similar neoplasms can also arise from extramedullarychromaffin cells and are referred to as paragangliomas [2].

Pheochromocytoma, the "great masquerader," is a neoplasm of neuroectodermal chromaffin cells which produces excess catecholamines.
In vivo and in vitro observations have shown that neuroblastic tumours appear to recapitulate the development of differentiating, predominantly noradrenergic, sympathetic neurons, and chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla, suggesting that neuroblastoma arises from aberrant or blocked differentiation in normal SNS development (reviewed in [7]).
