Catecholamine-secreting tumors are one of the most complex and, at the same time, interesting problems of endocrinology. So far, the morphological criteria of malignancy of catecholaminesecreting tumors remain complex, and evidence of malignancy may manifest several years after a successful operation. It presents an interesting clinical case of a long 19-year follow-up of patients with primary inoperable pheochromoblastoma. After the radiotherapy, polychemotherapy, endovascular occlusion of tumor vessels, which subsequently reduced the signs of tumoral invasion and made possible a complete surgical removal of the tumor. The only radical method for treatment of catecholamine-secreting tumors is surgery. However, in the case of inoperable primary tumor is necessary radiotherapy and polychemotherapy.
