More than 300 cases of pheochromocytoma have been reported since Labbe, Tinel and Doumer1 in 1922 first described the clinical picture in its hypertensive paroxysms. About 0.5% of all patients with hypertension are thought to have a functioning chromaffin tumor,3, 4, 5 and it is estimated that between 600 and 800 people die annually from this cause.5 These deaths are preventable, for the hypertension due to this tumor is curable. The clinical features of this disease, as well as the various diagnostic procedures, have been adequately described.2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18,
