Abstract

Pheochromocytomas are catecholamine secreting enterochromaffin tumours causing paroxysmal hypertension. Our patient was a young boy who presented with cerebral haemorrhage. Sometimes diagnosing them can be difficult, due to overlapping with other conditions such as myocardial ischemia, baroreflex failure, migraine, panic disorder arrhythmias, hyperthyroidism, carcinoid tumours and stroke. This patient is of clinical interest as pheochromocytoma presented with life-threatening cerebro vascular attack.
