AbstractPhaeochromocytomas are rare tumours that most commonly present with chronic sustained hypertension and hypertensive paroxysms or crises. We report a 49-year-old woman with unsuspected phaeochromocytoma who presented with sudden onset of profound hypotension and adult respiratory distress syndrome unresponsive to fluid and inotropic support. This case illustrates the diversify of presentations of phaeochromocytoma, depending on the type and amount of catecholamines secreted.
