A 29-year-old woman was referred from Jos University Teaching Hospital (J.U.T.H) with a provisional diagnosis of phaeochromcytoma. She had presented with recurrent headaches, palpitations, excessive sweating, dizziness, syncope and hypertension. She was treated with phenoxybenzamine and propranolol for six weeks before the drugs were discontinued. This followed conflicting results of investigations done. The return of persistent and severe symptoms led to recommencement of the drugs and surgical intervention after four weeks.
