Snuff-induced hypertension in pheochromocytoma.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  6541713     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The dipping of snuff provoked paroxysmal hypertension that induced myocardial ischemia in a 69-year-old woman with pheochromocytoma. The diagnosis of her tumor was delayed by a report of a falsely low urine metanephrine level, resulting from interference with the metanephrine assay by meglumine present in the urine because of contrast coronary angiography performed on the day of urine collection.
