We report a rare case of extra-adrenal pheochromocytoma with coexisting thyrotoxicosis. A 52 year old female presented with hypertension, diabetes, hyperadrenergic symptoms, paroxysmal spells and computed tomography abdomen revealing a left extra adrenal mass. Evaluation showed normal 24 hour urinary epinephrine and metanephrines with an elevation of urinary norepinephrine. Thyroid function tests revealed thyrotoxicosis. The diagnosis of pheochromocytoma is delayed and the case illustrates the similarity of both the disorders. Despite existence of two similar disorders the patient recovered with treatment of both pheochromocytoma and thyrotoxicosis.
