Pheochromocytomas are catecholamine-secreting tumors. They show a considerable variation in clinical presentation ranging from adrenal incidentaloma in a normotensive individual to a patient in hypertensive crisis or with cerebrovascular or cardiac decompensation. We report here a case of fifty years old Omani female patient was referred to the endocrine clinic from a regional hospital, for further investigation of a an incidental left adrenal cyst that was detected on US abdomen being performed for evaluation of abdominal pain. Pheochromocytoma was eventually confirmed and an abdominal CT showed a large haemorrhagic cyst. The course and management is described and a focused review of the pitfalls of diagnosis and management is provided.
