Abstract

Cerebral ischemia and symptoms of stroke can occur as a rare manifestationin patients with pheochromocytoma. We describe a 45-year-old woman who wasadmitted because of a right-sided hemiparesis due to an ischemic lesion inthe left hypothalamus. The clinical diagnosis of a pheochromocytoma was proven by highly elevated urinary catecholamines and confirmed histologicallyafter operation. The successful removal of the tumor led to the almost complete recovery of the neurological deficiencies. It is of vital importance to know this atypical presentation of pheochromocytoma. The diagnosis of pheochromocytoma should be suspected in patients with focal cerebral symptoms, particularly in the presence of intermittent hypertension or other paroxysmal symptoms suggestive of pheochromocytoma.
