Pheochromocytoma is a rare tumor potentially life-threatening and associated with non specific and diverse symptomatology. Cardiac symptoms may mislead diagnosis; they could manifest as myocardial sideration concomitant to a hypertensive peak or supraventricular arythmia. We report a case of pheochromocytoma associated with hypokaliemia revealed by a myocardial ischemia with acute cardiac failure and severe left ventricular depression and complete reversal after surgery.
