Pheochromocytomas are rare catecholamine secreting neuroendocrine tumors that can cause intracerebral hemorrhage sometimes and can very rarely cause cardiomyopathy simulating hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. We report a case of combination of these rare clinical complications occurring in a patient with pheochromocytoma. This case illustrates importance of early recognition of classic symptoms of catecholamine excess in young patients with hypertension.
