Introduction: We present a case of a 29-year-old
patient treated due to fully symptomatic pheochromocytoma
of the right adrenal gland.
Case presentation: Patient was operated on and an open
right-sided adrenalectomy was performed. At the time of
the surgery, a rupture of the tumor capsule occurred. Five
years post-operatively, a recurrence of the symptoms of
chromaffin-cell tumor was noted. After the exact localization
of the multiple recurrences, the patient was reoperated
Conclusion: The case of pheochromocytoma is presented
due to the possibility of chromaffin-cell seeding into the
peritoneum, with no signs of distal metastases so far.
