Pheochromocytomas (PCCs) and paragangliomas (PGLs) are rare tumours arising from chromaffin tissues. Pheochromocytomas occur in the adrenal medulla, while paragangliomas occur in extra-adrenal locations and can be divided into sympathetic and parasympathetic categories.
Pheochromocytomas are rare catecholamine secreting tumours of adrenal gland and extra-adrenal chromaffin tissue.1 Mostly sporadic and associated with paroxysmal or sustained hypertension, they can be associated with hereditary syndromes and atypical presentations posing diagnostic challenges.2 We describe a case of Neurofibromatosis type 1 associated pheochromocytoma presenting with reversible cardiomyopathy and cardiogenic shock.
Pheochromocytomas (PCCs) [10] are catecholamine-secreting tumors derived from chromaffin tissue of the adrenal medulla.
Approximately 85% arise from chromaffin cells in the adrenal medulla, and 15% arise from chromaffin tissue in extra-adrenal sites extending from the neck to the pelvis, although most are found intra-abdominally.
Cell therapy to treat chronic pain, such as with adrenal chromaffin tissue, was conceived [23], demonstrated through multiple animal studies [24], and then tested clinically [25].
Pheochromocytomas are rare tumors in the chromaffin tissue that produce excess quantities of catecholamines, particularly norepinephrine, and are commonly found in the adrenal medulla.
