This week’s case-based question:

He recently checked his blood pressure at a local store and found that it was elevated, and that is the reason for today’s visit.

As you start examining the patient, he has what he calls a “panic episode,” and you notice that his blood pressure is 170/100 mm Hg, his pulse is 124 beats/minute, and he has profuse diaphoresis. This episode lasts for 10 minutes and then his blood pressure drops to 142/84 mm Hg and his pulse decreases to 88 beats/minute. You are concerned the patient may have pheochromocytoma.
