Introduction: Spontaneous hemorrhage within a pheochromocytoma resulting in capsular rupture and hemorrhage is a rare condition, but also catastrophic and highly lethal event. An emergent operation for pehochromocytoma rupture is higher mortality than elective operation, and misdiagnosis and failure to control the hemorrhage lead directly to 100% mortality.
Aim(s): To report a case of pheochromocytoma rupture successfully treated with trans arterial embolization (TAE) before laparotomy.
Materials and methods: Describe the patient’s profile and findings of examinations.
