PACHECO, Jorge M. et al. Acute coronary syndrome with ST elevation associated with pheochromocytoma with initially normal catecholamine values. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2016, vol.23, n.1, pp.72.e1-72.e4. ISSN 0120-5633.

Pheochromocytomas are catecholamine-secreting tumors that involve paroxysmal hypertension or hypotension and palpitations. They are a rare cause of acute coronary syndrome. We present the case of a patient with acute coronary syndrome secondary to a pheochromocytoma with initially normal catecholamine values.

Keywords : Tumors; Alpha adrenergic receptors; Beta adrenergic receptors; Acute myocardial infarction.
