Abstract

Text-Size + 

  • We report the first known case of concurrent partial cystectomy and cesarean delivery in a pregnant female with bladder pheochromocytoma. A 28-year-old G4P2 female presented at 28 weeks gestation with labile blood pressures requiring three antihypertensive medications. Urinary catecholamines were elevated, and a subsequent MRI showed a 2.6 cm x 3.2 cm bladder wall mass. She underwent combined cesarian section and partial cystectomy at 37 weeks. Fluid resuscitation and vasopressors were required in the immediate postoperative period. While bladder pheochromocytoma with pregnancy is a rare occurrence, concurrent delivery and removal of the bladder tumor can be performed safely.
