Post-surgical treatment of a patient with ectopic pheochromocytoma

C. F. Sheng, Wang, R., Liu, B. Y., Zhang, H. M., Fang, M., and Zheng, X., Post-surgical treatment of a patient with ectopic pheochromocytoma, vol. 14. pp. 2139-2145, 2015.

We report here the course and treatment of a patient with ectopic pheochromocytoma. The patient was cured after treatment with respiratory and circulatory support, multiple-organ protection, and continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) for approximately 2 weeks. After misdiagnosis, a patient with ectopic pheochromocytoma who is being treated should undergo aggressive fluid supplementation and CRRT instead of central venous pressure measurement, which has limited value in guiding fluid supplementation. The main priority is maintaining hypotension.
