A patient was admitted for a study of his hypertension because coarctation of the aorta (COA) was suspected. His history also provided clues of pheochromocytoma. A computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a right-side supraadrenal tumor. A study of urine catecholamine showed a strong positive result. Cardiac catheterization revealed that the patient had a postductal COA and a supraadrenal tumor. Surgery and pathology confirmed that the patient had pheochromocytoma.
