Abstract

Phaeochromocytoma is a recognized cause for hypertension. Ninety percent arises in the adrenal medulla. It arises from chromaffin cells and secretes adrenalin and noradrenalin. The common symptoms are headache, palpitations, excessive sweating and associated hypertension. The features may be intermittent or persistent. Surgical excision is indicated.
