Abstract
Pheochromocytoma is a rare disease in children, arising from chromaffin cells of adrenal medullary or extra-adrenal paraganglionic tissues. Typical clinical features include hypertension, diaphoresis, headache, and weight loss. It should therefore be considered that patients associated with hypertension might have pheochromocytoma. The diagnostic approach is based on typical clinical manifestations and biochemical test. Pheochromocytoma is completely curable by surgical resection. Early diagnosis and total excision are the most important aspects of accurate treatment of pheochromocytoma in children. We report two patients with pheochromocytoma presented with hypertension and weight loss both of which were improved after tumor resection.
