ENRIQUEZ, Andrés; PAREDES, Alejandro; TAGLE, Rodrigo  e  CASTRO, Pablo. Presentation of a pheochromocytoma as an acute coronary syndrome: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2014, vol.142, n.2, pp.250-254. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872014000200015.

The typical symptoms of pheochromocytoma are palpitations, sweating, headaches and hypertension. We report a 70-year-old female admitted to the hospital due to a sudden onset of precordial pain with electrocardiographic changes. After admission the patient evolved with recurrent chest pain accompanied by hypertensive paroxysms and a pheochromocytoma was suspected. Measurement of catecholamines and metanephrines confirmed the diagnosis and an abdominal magnetic resonance localized the tumor. The patient underwent surgery with successful removal of the pheochromocytoma and was discharged in good conditions.

Palavras-chave : Acute coronary syndrome; cardiovascular; Catecholamines; Metanephrine; Pheochormocytoma.
