Pheochromocytoma is a relatively rare cause of hypertension which accounts for less than 0.1% of all cases. Its typical clinical symptoms are headache, sweating and palpitation due to excessive catecholamine release, but atypical cases are also encountered. Pheochromocytoma can be successively treated by surgery; however, adrenal resection, considered an extremely difficult operation several decades ago, without identification of this condition is very risky. Currently, elective surgery is preferred after blocking the effects of catecholamine.
