Abstract

The authors report a rare case where a pheochromocytoma which was not in the adrenal gland occurred in the broad ligament. A review of the literature resulted in only three published cases being found. When the symptomatology suggests that there may be a pheochromocytoma in the body one has to research where it is sited and one has to think of such a possibility if a tumour in the broad ligament is found during an operation, so that the risks of operating on these tumours can be lessened.
