The USG-guided FNAC reported the case as- Malignant Neuroendocrine tumor-possibly pheochromocytoma/ paraganglioma. CECT reported the mass as retroperitoneal neoplasm. The VMA levels in urine were raised 3 folds. Surgery was performed and histopathological report suggested features of-Pheochromocytoma.
