Hypertension in pregnancy is most commonly attributed to preeclampsia; other potentially disastrous hypertensive disorders such as pheochromocytoma (PCC) remain understudied. PCC is a tumor of catecholamine producing cells of the adrenal medulla. Administration of anesthesia to patients with PCC is a conundrum. Presence of pregnancy further aggravates the difficulties. Safety of both mother and fetus is very crucial. We describe a pregnant patient diagnosed with PCC in mid-trimester who underwent successful tumor resection. Our case illustrates that with proper preoperative preparation, comprehensive teamwork, and painstaking anesthetic management, favourable outcome is possible even in such risky cases.
