Pheochromocytoma is a rare tumor that secretes excess catecholamines. Pheochromocytoma crises may be precipitated by the use of several drugs. This article describes the case of a patient affected by pheochromocytoma in whom multiple organ failure developed after contemporary administration of ergotamine, caffeine, and nimesulide. The patient recovered completely long after surgical intervention.
