Abstract

Pseudopheochromocytoma is a rare syndrome resembling clinical manifestations of pheochromocytoma. It has been suggested that an enhanced release of adrenaline and exaggerated cardiovascular responses to catecholamines might contribute to the paroxysmal hypertension and clinical symptoms resembling pheochromocytoma. The proper diagnosis of this syndrome is difficult and must exclude the treatable pheochromocytoma.
