ABSTRACT
Pheochromocytoma are known to develop at extraadrenal locations in about 10%, however primary cardiac pheochromacytoma account for fewer than 50 cases in the medical literature. We experienced a case of intrapericardial mass in a 60‐years‐old male patient with typical presentation of pheochromocytoma. A functioning extra‐ adrenal pheochromocytoma was diagnosed by means of a biochemical study and radiologic imaging study. We successfully removed a 6.5¡¿4.5¡¿2.5 cm sized mass between the main pulmonary artery and ascending aorta within the pericardial space. We report the first case of an intrapericardial pheochromocytoma in Korea with a review of literature.(Korean J Med 70:434-438, 2006) Key Words : Paraganglioma, Intrapericardial mass, Extra-adrenal pheochromocytoma
