Abstract: 

Pheochromocytomas are cathecolamine producing tumor arising from chromaffin cells of adrenal medulla and extra adrenal tissues. Renal anomalies have been reported rarely in this disease. Here we report a rare case of pheochromocytoma associated with renal agenesis. Patient was a boy presented with headache and hypertension. In radiologic examinations, an adrenal mass was detected in the left side, with no renal tissue on that side. It was reported an adrenal pheochromocytoma in histopathology. Renal agenesis confirmed during surgery. All of the patient's symptoms alleviated after the resection of tumor. Considering association of renal abnormalities with pheochromocytoma, it is recommended to perform genetic analysis and kidney evaluation in cases with MEN type 2 or each of its components.
