Pediatric hypertension represents a rare though increasingly common medical problem. When encountered, a workup to determine the etiology should be conducted. In this report, we detail an unusual case in which a teenager presenting with hypertension was found to have multifocal primary paragangliomas. We illustrate important considerations in management which include appropriate preoperative labs and imaging, collaboration with endocrinology for preoperative alpha-blockade, surgical management with close perioperative hemodynamic control, and genetic evaluation for all patients with paragangliomas.
