PMID:  20446956     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Limb Ischaemia is an exceptional complication of catecholamine toxicity caused by a phaeochromocytoma. We present a middle-aged female patient with severe subacute peripheral ishaemia, gangrene and eventual amputation of all four distal limbs due to a large non-metastatic left adrenal gland phaeochromocytoma and summarise the available literature concerning previously reported cases.
