Extra-adrenal pheochromocytomas (EAPs) are rare catecholamine-secreting tumours. The patient commonly present with headache, palpitation, anxiety, diaphoresis, raised blood pressure and heart rate which can be sustained or episodic and less commonly Raynaud's phenomenon. We present a case of an adult woman who presented with unilateral upper limb acrocyanosis and hypertension which was secondary to EAP and resolved completely after surgical removal of the tumour.
