In this lecture, Professor Zach Murphy will present on Pheochromocytoma. We will discuss the pathophysiology, focusing on the tumor of the adrenal medulla that produces excessive catecholamines, leading to episodes of hypertension, palpitations, and sweating. The lecture will include a discussion on the clinical manifestations, such as headache, palpitations, and diaphoresis, often triggered by certain activities or medications. The digital presentation will begin with the diagnostic approach, highlighting the importance of measuring plasma free metanephrines or urinary catecholamines and imaging studies to locate the tumor. Finally, we will review management strategies for Pheochromocytoma, emphasizing surgical removal of the tumor and preoperative management with alpha and beta-blockers to control hypertension. Enjoy the lecture and support us below!
