Abstract

Pheochromocytomas of urinary bladder are rare tumours. They present with non-specific clinical signs and symptoms. We present a case of bladder pheochromocytoma who presented with recurrent attacks of headache and hypertension during micturition in otherwise normotensive female. On evaluation she was found to have paroxysmal hypertension and raised urinary metanephrines with well-defined mass at the base of the bladder. The patient was treated surgically by partial cystectomy and lesion was confirmed postoperatively.
