The clinical presentation of pheochromocytoma is variable and many biochemical and imaging methods have been suggested to improve the diagnostic accuracy of what has been termed "the great masquerader". This case-report is of a middle-aged woman with a non-specific clinical presentation suggesting acute coronary syndrome or subacute myocarditis. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) at presentation showed myocardial edema and intramyocardial late gadolinium enhancement (LGE).

Pheochromocytoma is associated with catecholamine-induced cardiac toxicity, but the extent and nature of cardiac involvement in clinical cohorts is not well-characterized.
This study characterized the cardiac phenotype in patients with pheochromocytoma using cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR).
A total of 125 subjects were studied, including patients with newly diagnosed pheochromocytoma (n = 29), patients with previously surgically cured pheochromocytoma (n = 31), healthy control subjects (n = 51), and hypertensive control subjects (HTN) (n = 14), using CMR (1.

To report the case of a patient with a pheochromocytoma and apical left ventricular dysfunction that resolved after surgical resection of the pheochromocytoma, to review the effects of catecholamines on myocyte function and the concept that takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TC) is caused by excess catecholamines, and to illustrate the difficulty in the management of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) during a hypertensive crisis attributable to a pheochromocytoma.
We present the clinical history, physical findings, laboratory results, and imaging studies in a 60-year-old man with an ACS, TC, and an incidentaloma later diagnosed to be a pheochromocytoma. The association with TC and the pertinent literature are reviewed.
