HVA TEST

A test for homovanillic acid based upon the fact that dopamine is gift in sympathetic nervous tissue as precursor of norepinephrine; since norepinephrine has a metabolic pathway which yields homovanillic acid, tumours such as neuroblastomas and ganglioneuromas may reason elevations of urinary dopamine and homovanillic acid. Synonym: HVA test.
