Abstract

Pheochromocytoma is a catecholamine-secreting tumor of the adrenal glands whose typical presentation includes the triad of headache, palpitations, and diaphoresis. Pheochromocytoma crisis is an urgent medical condition whose diagnosis and management constitute a challenge for physicians. We present the case of a 55-year-old man who developed cardiogenic shock in the setting of a pheochromocytoma crisis. After stabilizing blood pressure with combined administration of α- and β-blockers, the tumor was surgically removed. Our diagnostic and therapeutic challenges are discussed.
