Chromaffin cells are neuroendocrine cells mainly found in the medulla of the adrenal gland. Most existing knowledge of these cells has been the outcome of extensive research performed in animals, mainly in the cow, cat, mouse and rat. However, some insight into the physiology of this neuroendocrine cell in humans has been gained. This review summarizes the main findings reported in human chromaffin cells under physiological or disease conditions and discusses the clinical implications of these results.
