A Rare Abdominal Tumor in a Pediatric Age Group: Pheochromocytoma

We report a case of 10 year old boy with unilateral pheochromocytoma who presented with short history of abdominal pain and palpitation. He remained under treatment by general practitioners and incidentally markedly high blood pressure was noted. Ultrasound and abdominal CT oriented towards the diagnosis. After careful preparation and preoperative optimization, surgical excision (right total adrenalectomy) was done and an unusual large pheochromocytoma tumor of about 8 × 10 cm adherent to liver and IVC was excised and histopathological confirmed without any evidence of malignancy.
