Bladder phaeochromocytomas are rare neuroendocrine neoplasms whose diagnosis can be missed in spite of their rather suggestive presentation. It is mandatory to collect a thorough medical history and to recognize their typical symptoms. This study reports the case of a woman, treated for hypertensive crisis, who was diagnosed with bladder phaeochromocytoma thanks to a vet noting her fainting after micturition.
