Abstract
The Pheochromocytoma is a rare tumor of childhood and can arise from chromaffin tissue anywhere in the body. Most commonly it is located in the adrenal medulla, especially on the right side. We experienced a case of pheochromocytoma in a 14 year old boy, who had paroxysmal palpitation, perspiration, dyspnea and contemporary paroxysmal hypertension. Diagnosis was made by clinical features, elevated plasma catecholamine concentration, elevated urinary catecholamine metabolites concentration in 24 hrs, abdominal CT scan and pathological finding after surgical removal. Followed plasma and urinary catecholamine study after 2 weeks postoperatively showed normal value. The case was presented with briefreview of literatures.
