Useful in the diagnosis of adrenal neoplasms (pheochromocytoma, neuroblastoma and ganglioneuroblastoma) in adults and children. The predictive value of the test on a 24 hour sample is greater than on random samples.

prior to collection. Medications that can interfere with the assay
include: L-DOPA, Phenothiazines, Catecholamine-containing drugs,
diuretics and vasodilators. The effect of drugs on Vanillylmandelic

and transportation.
