Pheochromocytoma is a rare tumour originating from the adrenal medulla and is chromaffin cell catecholamine secretor. We report a case of a previously healthy young lady presenting with symptoms of palpitations, sweating, and giddiness along with secondary amenorrhoea which is a rare presentation due to pheochromocytoma. Resolution of symptoms occurred 3 months after resection of tumour.
