  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 12-year-old girl was referred to us due to papilledema and decreased vision in her left eye. Fundus findings in both eyes were indicative of hypertensive retinopathy. The systemic blood pressure was initially normal and became chronically elevated 2 weeks later. Elevated serum catecholamine level and whole body CT scan led to detection of urine bladder tumor. Pheochromocytoma was diagnosed from the surgically removed specimen. The fundus resumed normal appearance 2 months after surgery.
