Abstract

A clinical case of arterial hypertension (AH) in patient with family history of pheochromocytoma is described. Patient has no classical clinical signs and imaging phenotype of pheochromocytoma, but there are a number of warnings – family history of pheochromocytoma, prevalence of humoral-metabolic regulation and reduced reaction to the respiratory test, CT-signs of nodular hyperplasia of left adrenal gland – which may indicate its possible manifestations in the future, and therefore the monitoring is required. Our patient with AH and family history of pheochromocytoma has no classical clinical signs and imaging phenotype of pheochromocytoma, but there are a number of warnings – family history of pheochromocytoma, prevalence of humoral-metabolic regulation and reduced reaction to the respiratory test, CT-signs of nodular hyperplasia of left adrenal gland - which may indicate its possible manifestations in the future, and therefore the monitoring is required
