HERDY, Gesmar Volga Haddad et al. Pheochromocytoma in childhood. Arq. Bras. Cardiol. [online]. 2005, vol.84, n.3, pp. 267-269. ISSN 0066-782X.

We report the case of a child with pheochromocytoma of difficult clinical management, confirmed on the anatomicopathological study, and cured after surgical resection.
