Pheochromocytoma – An ECG diagnosis?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Pheochromocytoma is a rare catecholamine-secreting tumor in the adrenal medulla. In some cases, the first symptoms are cardiovascular. We report on two patients with pheochromocytoma, who both presented with bidirectional ventricular tachycardia (BDVT). We elaborate on the mechanisms of BDVT in the setting of pheochromocytoma.
