Pheochromocytomas (PCC) is rare neuroendocrine tumors which present as the malignant and familial features. These catecholaminesecreting tumors have classic triad symptoms of headache, sweating, and palpitation primarily due to the release of catecholamines and their metabolites in the body with hypertensive crisis become its predominant clinical symptoms. The excessive release of catecholamines may produce a life-threatening hemodynamic surge during the intraoperative period. Therefore preoperative preparation and intraoperative monitoring become an essential point. Nevertheless, postoperative care is also a critical issue to curtail its morbidity and mortality rates further.
