About test

Increased metanephrine and normetanephrine levels are found in patients with pheochromocytoma and tumors derived from neural crest cells. Increased urine metanephrines can be detected in nonpheochromocytoma hypertensive patients; quantification may help distinguish these patients from those with tumor-induced symptoms.
