The diagnosis of pheochromocytoma is being made with greater frequency since more reliable tests for its recognition have come into more or less widespread use. It is not, however, encountered frequently. A review of 2,720 autopsies done at the Montefiore Hospital since it was opened in July, 1929, failed to reveal a single instance of pheochromocytoma. Pheochromocytoma complicated by pregnancy remains a very uncommon situation. Keir1 recently reported the successful removal of a pheochromocytoma from a 32 year old white woman in the third month of pregnancy, with cure of the patient's symptoms and survival of the fetus.
