The clinical presentation of pheochromocytoma is variable. The classic symptoms are headache, diaphoresis, and tachycardia, with paroxysmal hypertension. Other less common cardiovascular manifestations, such as arrhythmias, angina pectoris, acute myocardial infarction, dilated cardiomyopathy, and acute heart failure, have been reported occasionally. We present the case of a middle-aged woman who had stress-induced cardiomyopathy with a left ventricular thrombus, due to the pheochromocytoma. The thrombus was embolized to the aorto-iliac bifurcation during hospitalization. We removed the thrombus by a catheter thromboembolectomy and performed a surgical left adrenalectomy. After the operation, all of her symptoms and the underlying diseases (hypertension, hyperglycemia, heart failure, dyslipidemia) resolved.
