Abstract

The association of hypertrophy with neoplasm is well-known. Pheochromocytoma is a rare neoplasm in children. Isolated hemihypertrophy and hemihypertrophy linked to other genetic disorders have rarely been associated with the development of pheochromocytoma, with only two cases reported to date. We report a novel case of a 4-year-old male with bilateral adrenal pheochromocytomas and lower extremity hemihypertrophy in the setting of von Hippel-Lindau syndrome.
