Int J Cardiol. 1998 Aug;65(3):305-10. doi: 10.1016/s0167-5273(98)00118-1.


A 25-year-old woman was admitted to our center for left heart failure. The clinical, electrocardiographic and bioptic findings suggested an acute lymphocytic myocarditis. One month later, paroxysmal hypertension and high urinary excretion of noradrenaline revealed the presence of a pheochromocytoma.
