Abstract: Pheochromocytomas are rare tumors which can be malignant in 10% of cases. We present the case of a 75-year-old woman who presented with headache and palpitation for 1 year. She had a past history of right adrenalectomy for pheochromocytoma 20 years back. In between, the patient was asymptomatic. Twenty-four-hour urinary vanillylmandelic acid was raised. Noncontrast CT and ultrasound of abdomen were unremarkable. The patient underwent 68Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT that showed metastasis to left ilium, which was confirmed on biopsy.
