A 33-year-old woman (G(1)P(0)) presented to a maternity hospital at 36 weeks' gestation. She suffered from sickle cell disease with three acute crises in the previous five months of her pregnancy. She also had a phaeochromocytoma with inadequately controlled hypertension. This report describes the multi-disciplinary work-up and peri-operative management necessary to optimise her medical condition before caesarean section at 39 weeks' gestation and subsequent removal of a malignant phaeochromocytoma.
