Pheochromocytoma is a rare, catecholamine-secreting tumor derived from chromaffin cells. It usually presents with palpitations, diaphoresis, headache, and paroxysmal hypertension. Rarely, it may associate with acute myocardial infarction (MI) and other cardiovascular complications. Here, we are reporting a case of a 40-year-old male with adrenal pheochromocytoma presented with a history of repeated episodes of acute pulmonary edema along with electrocardiographic changes and serum cardiac marker elevation, suggestive of MI, with complete reversal of these abnormalities after surgical removal of the tumor.
