Abstract

Il feocromocitoma è un tumore secernente catecolamine, raro; deriva dalle cellule cromaffini. Descriviamo il caso di un bambino con malattia di Von Hippel-Lindau, con feocromocitoma surrenale che si è presentato con grave cardiomiopatia dilatativa causata da ipertensione secondaria. Vengono descritte le caratteristiche ecografiche con mezzo di contrasto, comparate sia a risonanza magnetica che a tomografia computerizzata.
