Between 1964 and 1983 at Rush-Presbyterian-St Luke's Medical Center, 30 surgical procedures on 28 patients were performed for pheochromocytoma. In two cases, the tumors were nonresectable. Three patients had malignant pheochromocytomas, and of these, all had recurrences by eight years after surgery. Although the prognosis for patients with malignant pheochromocytomas is not good, the majority of patients have benign tumors and are cured of their disease.
