The diagnosis of dilated cardiomyopathy associated with pheochromocytoma was made in a 24 year old male on the basis of symptoms and signs, measurements of metabolites of catecholamine,echocardiography and radionuclide ventriculography were preformed and demonstrated. The presence of a tumor on both adrenal glands without definite distant metastasis was demonstrated by abdominal ultrasonography, CT scanning and 131I-MIBC scintigraphy. Surgical removal was performed after proper preoperative preparation with a-adrenergic blocker. During the surgery, neither significant arrhythmia nor severe change of blood pressure was observed. After surgery, cardiac function of the patient improved slowly and progressively.
