Pheochromocytomas of the bladder are rare tumors that arise from chromaffin tissues of neuroectodermal origin (primarily the adrenal medulla). Pheochromocytomas are extra-adrenal in approximately 10% of all cases and are termed paragangliomas. Hematuria and hypertension during urination are the most common symptoms and signs of bladder pheochromocytomas, along with generalized symptoms due to elevated catecholamines, such as headaches, blurred vision, palpitations, and flushing. Herein we report a case of a pheochromocytoma of the bladder presenting with cardiovascular symptoms and normal catecholamine levels. (Korean J Urol Oncol 2010;8:51-54)
