More than Rare Pheochromocytomas: Bilateral and Hemorrhagic, Giant and Metastatic


Introduction: Pheochromocytomas (PCC) are rare neuroendocrine tumors. These catecholamine-secreting tumors, with an average size of 4.9cm, are multiple in 10% of cases. About 10% are malignant but distant metastases are rare. Non-traumatic adrenal hemorrhage is an unusual potentially fatal event seen in PCC.

Aim(s): Presenting atypical scenarios to convey an improved management of PCC.

Materials and methods: Clinical Case Report of two rare PCC presentations.
