We report pheochromocytoma and haemophilia occurring in a 19-year-old South Indian man. To the best of our knowledge, this case is the first of its kind to be reported in the medical literature. The patient had bilateral adrenal pheochromocytomas with an extradrenal pheochromocytoma on the left side, and was successfully operated on after optimal preoperative blood pressure control and factor VIII support.
Keywords: bilateral adrenalectomy, factor VIII concentrate, haemophilia, pheochromocytoma
