The occurrence of pheochromocytoma during pregnancy is extremely rare and diagnosis is difficult owing to the variety of presentations and nonspecific symptoms. We report a case of young pregnant woman with 25 weeks of gestation with a diagnosis of pheochromocytoma. Surgical resection of the tumour was done. The patient was discharged on day nine with normal blood pressure (BP) and relaxed uterus. She had regular antenatal checkups and delivered vaginally a healthy male baby.  On follow-up for three years, she is having normal BP with no symptoms.
