Abstract

Pheochromocytomas are neuroendocrine tumors. In this report, we present a 15-year-old girl who had cerebral palsy and pheochromocytoma. She also had a diagnosis of hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia in her history. She underwent bilateral laparoscopic cortical sparing adrenalectomy. We report the experience of laparoscopic bilateral cortical sparing adrenalectomy of a pediatric pheochromocytoma.
