Pheochromocytoma of urinary bladder - a case report.

Abstract

Pheochromocytomas are catecholamine producing neuroendocrine tumours. Bladder involvement with pheochromocytoma is rare that usually presents with hypertension, hematuria and syncope often related to voiding. Clinical manifestation may be inconsistent and high index of suspicion is required for accurate diagnosis. We report a case, who presented with gross intermittent hematuria and mild elevation of pulserate and bloodpressure. Patient was adequately treated with partial cystectomy.
