Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of pheochromocytoma, which was discovered during the patient's admission for treatment of mandibular fracture, is presented. Pheochromocytoma represents a potentially life-threatening disease, but alsl is a curable cause of hypertension. Therefore, in spite of its low incidence, it is important that the oral surgeon consider it in his evaluation of the hypertensive patient, especially when associated symptoms of sweating, palpitations, and headache are present.
