Pheochromocytomas or paragangliomas are rare and the diagnosis remains a challenge for clinicians. We present a woman suffering from recurrent myocardial infarction and cardiomyopathy, who was finally diagnosed with paraganglioma. Pheochromocytomas or paraganglioma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a patient with symptoms possibly referring to acute coronary syndrome and cardiomyopathy.

Key words: pheochromocytomas, paragangliomas, cardiomyopathy, myocardial infarction
